Jamie's Story - Brain Tumour

Jamie's Story

- Brain tumour

Jamie was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour at the age of 24 that ended his judo career. Jamie was the British number one and the Welsh champion – but was told he will never compete again after receiving his diagnosis.

“Being told at the age of 24 that you’ll probably never see 30. That’s a moment you will never forget… You’re not going to grow old. You’re not going to have kids. You’re not going to get married and have a house and all those things you kind of expected you would do.”

Sadly Jamie passed away in November 2017.
