The ex-minister’s cultural secretary has struggled for the last four months due to brain cancer. This was conveyed by her family.
This was stated by a post on Instagram by Ella Mils a blogger and writer about food and cookbooks Deliciously Ella. This is seen by putting up a photo of Jowell on her 70th birthday and revealing “some of the toughest things in my life”
In the photo is also shown Mills, who is a former lawmaker Shaun Wordward who married Jowel’s son. Mathew displayed pictures of the couple’s family with her.
Later in a statement stating “I am currently in care, but will soon be sharing and finding a way to live better and longer for cancer sufferers”
She also sent a message and marked her birthday on Twitter by saying that she has made a resolution to help cancer survivors to live longer and better.
In her Instagram post Milla said that the diagnosis made the family determined to find new ways to support cancer patients.
Then how longs can she survive with her illness? However, the survival of brain tumor sufferer depends on their condition with many different factors. Factors are like the type of cancer, the level of fitness and treatment that is being undertaken. So surely it will not be known how longs you will survive to live.
Actually this brain cancer is quite rare with many different types. Some types are even very rare and difficult to find depending on the type of tumor they have.
Generally for malignant brain tumors about 15% can survive more than five years after diagnosis.
Although the possibility of a much smaller tumor will respond to treatment. It could be a tumor that grows quickly but will quickly return compared to a slow-growing tumor.
The position in the brain also affects the treatment gave by the doctor. If surgery is done some of the balding part is difficult to do than the others. Tumors are sometimes in areas where it is impossible to remove everything and the healthy tissue margins that surround it and this increases the risk of cancer returning.
Some parts of the brain also cannot be performed surgery at all because it is associated with visual nerve, spinal cord or close to the main blood vessels. Perhaps for this area the way radiotherapy or chemotherapy is the best choice for treatment. In addition, how big the tumor responds to the treatment.
Jowel was assigned during Toni Blair’s reign to win the 2012 Olympics and at that time he became a cultural secretary. He was one of the MPs minister during the reign of Toni Blair and Gordon Brown.
He resigned in 2015 from MPs for Dulwich and West Norwood then ran for the London mayor of the labor party but lost to Sadiq Khan.
Sarah Lindsay from Cahrity’s Tumor executives say Jowell is one of 11,000 people a year diagnosed with the disease.
“Our hearts are with Tessa Jowell and her family after being diagnosed with high-grade brain tumors”
“We praise the way he did his 70th birthday to help backward people because this devastating disease”
