LONDON. Baroness Tessa Jowell receives standing ovation in House of Lords after moving speech about her brain cancer (VIDEO)
Let me tell you what happened to me. On 24 May last year, I was on my way to talk about new Sure Start projects in East London. I got into a taxi but couldn’t speak. I had two powerful seizures. I was taken to hospital.
Two days later, I was told that I had a brain tumour, glioblastoma multiforme, or GBM.
A week later the tumour was removed by an outstanding surgeon at the National Hospital in Queen Square. I then had the standard treatment of radio- and chemotherapy.
