Thirty-year-old Chloe Bain was diagnosed with a brain tumour after suffering extreme fatigue and headaches but – after gruelling treatment – she was determined to show it is possible to stay positive and enjoy life.

And she proved it last week when she took part in the Brain Tumour Charity’s 10km Twilight Walk in London.

Chloe stepped out with family and friends, along with 800 other fundraising volunteers, and raised more than £5,000 for the charity. And the total raised continues to rise thanks to donations from almost 200 supporters.

She said: “It was a great event following a route running through Hyde Park and St James’s Park and past lots of London landmarks. It was good to see so many supporters all turning out to help accelerate a cure and fund new research.

“The sea of red-branded charity T-shirts was impressive. Thank you so much to everyone who donated.”

After Chloe’s shock diagnosis two years ago she underwent 33 rounds of radiotherapy and 12 months of chemotherapy.

Now volunteering as a charity ambassador for The Brian Tumour Charity, she has launched an Instagram account @positivity_pants to share her story and help support those facing a similarly tough diagnosis.

There is still time to donate to her fundraiser: or follow @positivity_pants on Instagram for Chloe’s updates and next fundraising plans.

The Brain Tumour Charity is working to raise awareness of the early warning signs of a brain tumour and has launched an online symptoms checker at to help.
