YouTuber Gracie was diagnosed with a Craniopharyngioma – a brain tumour which affects the pituitary gland – in February 2019.
After surgery, she came to The Christie for proton beam therapy (PBT).
Following three months of PBT, Gracie made a video about her experience. She wanted to tell other potential patients about the treatment.
Gracie completed her treatment in May 2019. She now hopes the video will educate people about PBT and help other patients feel less anxious and reassured.
Gracie said: “I wanted to make this video to show new patients what they can expect from PBT if they need to have it.
“It can be a bit scary at first but the staff at The Christie really look after you and you soon get used to it.
“I hope other patients can watch my video and it helps them to feel better about the treatment.”
Gracie is now recovering and is back at school. She will receive regular check-ups following her treatment.
