Hi. Thank you for the last response Wee mee. I’m still not ready to accept my sisters diagnosis but I’m also reading a lot about the impact alcohol has on the brain.

    I hear you. I guess we all clutch at straws here trying to find answers that deep down we really don't want to hear.

    I'm no scientist but what I would say is that my mother-in-law died from a primary brain tumour in 1993. She  was 58 years old- never drank, never smoked, swam a mile every day and walked everywhere. The neurosurgeon told us when my husband was diagnosed at 50years old that  it was just sheer bad luck.

    Hang in there. Sending you a huge virtual hug

    Love n hugs

    Wee Me xx
