A 27-year-old woman has reminded people ‘to love everyday to its fullest’, after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Alexis Camber, who is from Aylesbury, penned an emotional Facebook post on Tuesday, June 15, which explained that after suffering a ‘random seizure’ in March of this year, she was diagnosed with the tumour that led to a 12-hour crainiotomy.

In her post, she also revealed that thanks to ‘the most incredible doctor’, part of the tumour was dissected and that she ‘incredibly survived paralysis and brain death on the operating table’.

Following the news, three of Alexis’ friends have set up a Just Giving page to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Charity, where they will collectively run 500km throughout July.

Alexis, who recently got married, said: “I am proud to say I am here to fight another day but to also remind you to love everyday to its fullest.

“Do what you want today as tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.

“Skinny dip, climb a mountain, eat cake for breakfast, tell someone you love them.

“Do it all while you can.”
