Tessa Jowell Diagnosed With Brain Cancer – speaks about not being afraid
Former Minister for Public Health and Culture Secretary, Tessa Jowell, has spoken about having a “clear sense of purpose”. This is despite being diagnosed with brain cancer last year.
In May 2017, Baroness Jowell was diagnosed with a high-grade brain tumour known as glioblastoma. In her first interview on the subject, she spoke to the Today programme about the effect cancer is having on her everyday life.
Baroness Jowell speaks in the House of Lords about her cancer and campaign on treatment for others.
This is the first time Baroness Jowell has spoken about the tumour. She has been told there is no further treatment.
Tessa Jowell was Member of Parliament for Dulwich and West Norwood from 1992 to 2015.
R4 Today’s Nick Robinson spoke with Baroness Jowell.
Quotes: It came with absolutely no expectation. No warning? Absolutely none at all. I had not a single apparent symptom.
Why is it important to you to go to the Lords to speak about it? Well, it hasn’t been a difficult decision at all. Because this is something that I feel a tremendous sense of mission about.
