What does hope mean to you?
Ex- Brain Tumour Patient
What hope means to Lucy: I had a brain tumour three years ago and am now completely clear. I think hope as a concept varies so much from person to person. Sometimes it is all you have; you HOPE you will get better, you Hope life will get easier and you HOPE that one day you'll get over what you've been through. In my case I actually feel it was faith more than hope; I had a real belief that I would get better so hope didn't seem to come into it. I think sometimes friends and family need to have hope, but patients need to have faith in themselves that they can be strong enough to deal with it.
with Hope in Our Hearts
In January 2009, Andrew McGill and Natalya Jagger, asked photographers on DPChallenge.com to help them complete a unique project in memory of Andrew's daughter, Rose.
Photographers were asked to shoot their idea of hope during March 2009, brain tumour awareness month (UK), and this inspirational book, 'With Hope in Our Hearts' is the result.
In his introduction for the book, Henry Friedman, Deputy Director of The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center wrote â€œThis wonderful book produces images that will help anyone and their family battling a brain tumor and indeed any other medical or even non-medical challenge. I believe all readers will find this to be deeply moving book and an essential ingredient for their own personal quest for health and happiness.â€
All Profits from the sale of this book will go to BT Buddies, an organisation dedicated to providing information, inspiration and hope to anyone affected by a brain tumour.
