Eoin’s Story

Eoin shared his story in video format with us to help others.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with a 3.5cm brain tumor called an Acoustic Neuroma. An Acoustic Neuroma is a rare type of brain tumour (growth). It is not cancerous and so is called a benign tumour. The tumour grows along a nerve in the brain (a cranial nerve) that is called the acoustic or vestibulocochlear nerve. This nerve controls your sense of hearing and balance. While researching online, I couldn’t find a lot of information about recovery and side-effects. So I decided to document my own journey to help others get through similar life changing events. If you need any info or advice, grab me on twitter/facebook @enortondesign. Music Credit: Everyday – Carly Comando.
