Mum's plea to make anniversary #BeMoreLauraDay

1 min read

Today, 22nd May, we are marking the first anniversary of Laura Nuttall who died from a glioblastoma (GBM) when she was just 23 years old. Laura was first diagnosed in 2018 following a routine eye test.

Horrified” by the statistics around brain tumours and the lack of government investment, Laura’s mum, Nicola Nuttall, became a dedicated campaigner and is continuing her daughter’s passion to raise awareness and find a cure.

Nicola said: “It broke Laura’s heart every time she heard of another young person diagnosed with a brain tumour.  I know campaigning for change is what she wanted us to do so that in the future other families don’t have to endure the same devastation that we have.”

Ahead of Laura’s anniversary, Nicola wants to try and turn a negative into a positive and has been tweeting for people to make the 22nd #BeMoreLauraDay by sharing “a photo of Laura’s words on your t-shirt/mug/bag or even better, put them into action: Be brave, silly, kind, honest” (as depicted in the photo above with Laura’s dad and sister, Mark and Gracie).

We’ll be remembering Laura and doing our best to #BeMoreLaura in her memory today.
