Age 14, brain tumour survivor
In 2009, Sam White, from Newark, was given just an hour to live by doctors. After treatment at Nottingham’s CBTRC, Sam has defied both the experts and the odds. Although he still suffers from memory loss, Sam is back at school with extra support.
If it wasn’t for the fact that we lived so close to these excellent facilities in Nottingham, Sam would not have stood a chance. Everyone has been fantastic – from the surgeons who operated on him that first night right down to the clinical psychologist who helped him overcome his fear of MRI scans.
What has really made a terrific impact is having access to the latest drugs and treatments through clinical trials at the CBTRC and for Sam, being treated with warmth and understanding, not just as a patient.
