Chester brain tumour survivor appears in charity YouTube video

Hannah Jones shares her story in a clip to promote the work of the Brain Tumour Charity

An inspirational teaching assistant from Chester is one of the stars of a new YouTube video in her capacity as a young ambassador for the Brain Tumour Charity.

Hannah Jones, 22, of Westminster Park, is helping to raise awareness of brain tumours and fundraises for the charity following her own courageous health battle.

The former Christleton High School student was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was 15 and in the midst of her GCSE studies.

She had to undergo three major operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy and suffered a stroke which left her unable to walk or feed herself.

But she made an astonishing recovery and now campaigns for greater research to be conducted into brain tumours.

Along with other young people, she shares her experience in Meet The Brain Tumour Charity’s Young Ambassadors and pledges to volunteer at a twilight walk in her bid to defeat brain tumours.
