Poetry, Perserverance and Psychology

A truly inspirational poem written by one of our survivors, Denisa; thank you for sharing your story with us.

‘Hi my name is Denisa Alia, I had a stage 4 brain tumour when I was 12. I underwent 10 hours of surgery in the brain, and 6 weeks of radiotherapy and also 8 cycles of packa chemo. So every thing was clear.  After a few years of treatment I started feeling really down and that’s how I managed to meet amazing Rachel, a psychologist at UCLH, working with her long term and I was back to my normal happy girl so on my last appointment I decided to describe everything in a few words to make an amazing poem. I thank all at uclh, thank you’
