Lady With Cancer Graduates At Exactly Four Years After The Doctors Told She Had Only One Year Live

This is the inspiring story of Laura Nuttall, who was diagnosed with a dangerous form of cancer known as glioblastoma. This is a form of growth that happens in the spine or the brain.

Laura got to find out about this in the first year of college  and the doctors told her that she had just 12 more months to live on earth.

According to her, with the support, care and live her mother, father and sister, she got all kinds necessary treatments from chemotherapy to radiotherapy and different surgeries.

Four years later, Laura graduates from Manchester University in United Kingdom, with a Second Class Upper (2:1) in politics, philosophy and economics (PPE) despite the doctors comment on her life.

Speaking during her graduation ceremony she said;

“If someone tells me I can’t do something, it makes me even more determined to do it and prove them wrong – my family knows that all too well. “So when a doctor told me that I wouldn’t be able to go back to university, I thought; “we’ll see about that” and it made me want to do my degree even more. Now here we are.” Laura also added that couldn’t have achieved any of it without support from her mother, sister and father Mark – but that now it was time for a rest. In her words: “I’m going to have some time out – I’m on chemotherapy again and have another three months to go before I have my next scan.”

Meanwhile she made her parents so proud. Her mother Nicola described her daughter as brave.

In her words;

“We’re all bursting with pride to see Laura graduating. When she was diagnosed we thought that was the end of her university career. “Laura reaching that milestone looked impossible when she was given 12-18 months to live – it was unimaginable pain for the whole family. “There have been really tough times over the last three years when she’s struggled with sickness and chemo related fatigue.”
