Donate to Rory’s Miles to Mayo

My name is Maggie and I am 13. I enjoy going to the stockcars, shopping, the beach and listening to music. My favourite film is Legally Blonde.

I found out I had a Brain Tumour on the 9th October 2020, four days before my 13th birthday after falling down a few stairs.

My diagnosis made me feel sad and cross. I didn’t want to be diagnosed anymore. I found it frustrating as I was able to walk into the hospital then after my operation, I had to rely on others to help as I was very ‘wobbly’.

” I think what Rory is doing is exciting and amazing! I have stayed at Daisy Lodge in Newcastle and would love everyone with a cancer diagnosis to get the opportunity to stay there as it was so much fun. “
