A brain tumour survivor has spoken of how she is lucky to be alive after the growth the size of an orange was surgically removed.

Lysette Taylor, from Lionel Hurst Close in Great Cornard, underwent a 10-hour operation after the tumour was spotted during a visit to her optician.

Specialists at Adden-brooke’s Hospital in Cambridge found a brain tumour that had been growing 3 millimetres a year since Lysette was a child.

Now her stepdad Jules Mumford, manager of Long Melford Football Club, is to complete the Ride London 100 cycle ride on Sunday to raise money for the Neurological Critical Care Unit at Addenbrooke’s where Lysette’s life was saved.
