Episode 13 - 3am Awake Club

Let's Talk About Brain Tumours

Nov 30 2021 • 44 mins

In this episode we talk to Andy Tudor about how being diagnosed with a meningioma 5 years ago has impacted his life.  Andy shares some of the creative solutions to some of the side effects of his tumour that he has come up with since his diagnosis, including how copes at night as he is unable to sleep for long periods of time causing him to wake up several times during the night.  Andy shares how, in a bid to keep the night time thought demons away he set up a Twitter account and most nights when he wakes up at around 3am he posts on Twitter and has built up a following of over 26,000 which helps keep him occupied during the night as people join his 3am awake club.
