Getting a brain tumour diagnosis does change you and your outlook on life, so don’t try to be the same person as you were before but embrace your new world and the challenges that face you. Also take some time to think about what you actually want from your life, as brain tumour or not we are all only here for a short time, and we need to make the most of it.
