Hi everyone. I don't know what to say really but just wondering if any of you has been through a brain tumour. I have and I haven't spoke to anyone professional about it and I would really appreciate it to talk to someone who knows what I am on about. I'm sorry just come on here and asking for advice straight away. I am getting desperate with finances aswell now, I'm a single mother of two young girls and I am finding it hard to just cope with finances. Im worrying alot aswell. I don't know where to turn to. Any advice/help would be very appreciated by me and my girls

    Hi @Warriorangel welcome to the community! I'm sorry to hear what you've been through. Unfortunately, I've not been able to find anyone of recent who has had a brain tumour. Did you know about The Brain Tumour Charity?

    Are you currently in receipt of any benefits? If not, our handy benefits calculator may be of use to you. I would also advise contacting your local CAB for trained advice and a full benefits check.

    Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions :)
