A Mansfield woman spoke about her father’s terminal brain tumor and how his symptoms appeared “like a thrown switch”. Amy Bradley’s father, Michael Bradley, 63, was diagnosed with glioblastoma (GBM) in October of last year.

Michael, known as Mick, received a “devastating” diagnosis and was told he only had 12 to 18 months to live. In 2016 Mick’s brother David Bradley of Shirebrook sadly died of the same type of tumor when he was 64.

Amy, 28, spoke about her father’s dire diagnosis, saying: “To be told Dad only had 12-18 months to live with treatment was devastating. I felt sick and thought ‘what has my dad done to deserve this?’
