Mother, 41, is paralyzed after a severe stroke and brain tumor

An active Somerset mother is left paralyzed and given only six months to live after suffering a stroke and a severe brain tumor.

Mother of two Lisa Whitbread, 41, of Charlton Adam, lived a busy life including riding horses and working in her dog grooming business before suffering a massive seizure in March in which her husband Dean had to revive her.

Lisa is rushed to the hospital, where an MRI scan reveals a massive brain tumor and a disastrous terminal prognosis.

A crowdfunding campaign to allow Lisa and her family to enjoy a Cornish beach holiday has been started by her mother Rosemary Russell and has raised over £3,000 so far.

Rosemary said: “The day they came in and said it was a brain tumor and she had six months was one of the worst days of my life.”

The nine hour operation saw Lisa rise to her feet, with 90 percent of the growth removed, and she did so well that she was allowed to go home within a week.
