In January 2019 Gemma was diagnosed with a Stage 4 brain tumour and is currently undergoing an intensive chemo and radiography programme. She was diagnosed after feeling unwell. The doctors originally thought that the tumour was benign, but after doing more tests it was revealed that it was Grade 4 so she needed to start treatment straight away.
Gemma is also looking into alternative treatments to get the best possible outcome for herself, family, and friends.
Gemma is 38 and lives in Marton with her husband, former footballer Graeme, and her children Grayson, 6 and Hadley, 3.
Gemma is one of those rare characters who touches your soul with her presence the moment you meet her. She always has time for everyone no matter how busy her own life is, and her positive outlook throughout this journey has inspired so many.
I was introduced to Gemma at the gym I attend and I was instantly drawn to her energy. A few months later when I was appointed as a Mums In Business Association Coordinator I invited Gemma to become a member as I knew she would add so much value to the meetings. As soon as she walked in to the first meeting she lit up the room and her journey has been followed by many women in the group. She is truly an inspiration.
So, I am looking to pull together a group of people that dare themselves to walk across red hot coals that burn at about 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. For only £25 registration I would love to invite you to join us.
All fire walking will be overseen by UK firewalk – a professional company led by Scott Bell who will provide training for participants and ensure all health and safety elements of the walk are taken care of.
