PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A woman who thought she was suffering from migraines was told she has just one year to live after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. Louise Hulme, 48, was given the devastating diagnosis after she became confused about where she was during a shopping trip. The fit and healthy Warrington mum, who went to the gym five days a week, started suffering from severe headaches in December 2019 and was initially told she was having migraines. But one month later, Louise had to be rushed to hospital after falling ill while out shopping in the January sales with her mum and sister, the Liverpool Echo reports. The mum-of-two had an episode where she felt the onset of a severe headache and became confused as to where she was. Doctors discovered she had a brain tumour, and three weeks later Louise underwent a successful operation to remove around 90 per cent of it. But her family were left shattered when oncologists confirmed Louise had stage four brain cancer, with a life expectancy of just 12 to 14 months. Louise underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatments, but eventually received the devastating news that the tumour had grown in size and could no longer be operated on in the UK. Her husband of 27 years, Kev, who she met at the age of 11, is now trying to raise enough money to take Louise to the Ivy Brain Tumour Centre in Phoenix, Arizona, where she can take part in trials for potential new cancer treatments. Louise and husband Kev pictured with their two children Charlotte, 24, and James, 18 (Image: Liverpool Echo) Kev, 47, told the Echo: "Louise went to the gym five days a week and I would have described her as extremely fit, so we were absolutely devastated to get that news. How do you tell the kids? That was the most upsetting thing. "The doctors refer to it as 'the beast of cancers.' They removed as much of the tumour as they could, but there's not a cure anywhere in the world. "Typically in these cases the person will live for another 12 to 14 months, though a small percentage can survive for as much as five years. "Louise's age and fitness were positives but not guarantees that this would be longer.

Kev is hoping that Louise will be able to see their daughter Charlotte, 24, get married next year, and their younger son James 18, reach his 21st birthday. "The NHS neurosurgeons and oncologists have been fantastic. I've been everywhere, including Harley Street in London and The Christie in Manchester, but there is nothing else over here that is available and they are not prepared to operate on Louise," Kev said. "I will do absolutely anything to give her the best chance I can. Louise was found to be a perfect candidate for the experimental trials they are carrying out at the Brain Tumour Centre, although there's no guarantee they will be successful. "If the treatment can extend her life by seven years, there may have got further towards a cure by that time." A fundraising page set up by Kev has already raised more than £63,000. Kev said he hoped to be able to take Louise to the States in the next few weeks, adding: "Time is something we do not have a lot of." "We're genuinely overwhelmed by the response," he said.
