Vicki, Queen of Sparkle here, just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I won’t be on your TV screens in January and February as I’m going into hospital to have an operation.
I wanted to share with you some of the challenges I’ve been facing over the last few years in order to raise awareness of my condition and to give others hope.
So now the scary stuff…
Two years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumour, but thanks to an incredible medical team it was removed and I was back on your screens within 3 months. At the time, I spoke about my condition as there seemed to be a general lack of awareness and how it can – and in fact how it shouldn’t – affect your life. My surgeon on hearing that I was on shopping TV said that this would actually aid my recovery and that anybody with such a condition would benefit from exercising their brain in this manner.
A few weeks ago, I was told that the tumour had returned which is clearly disappointing news, but as before I’m being positive. I have a great medical team and I’ll make sure I do all I can to beat this a second time.
I’ll be sure to keep you updated on what’s happening, but in the mean time I wanted to let you know I’m doing a charity event this weekend called The Twilight Walk. It’s in aid of raising funds for the Brain Tumour charity, so if you wish to support me go to my Just Giving page and make a pledge.
Thank you for all you support!
Love Vicki xxx
