The plea is being made by 29-year-old mother-of-two Chloe Rosbotham from Newtownabbey in a GoFundMe campaign.

On the page Chloe describes herself as a mum with “two beautiful children”.

She reveals that recently she had to undergo “brain surgery to remove a grade 2 brain tumour”.

Her post adds: “I have been told that in the future my tumour will become cancerous and I will need chemo or radio therapy”.

She adds that now she is “hoping to raise money for The Astro BrainTumour Charity in the hope that a cure will be found and that I will get to see my babies grow up and not leave them without a mother”.

“I don’t want my parents to have to lose a child, my partner to lose his soul mate,” she adds.

“Or any one of my family or friends to have to go through suffering”.

The appeal adds that a Giloma accounts for 50% of brain tumours found in children.

And there has been a rise in recent years of Gilomas in young people.

Chloe adds: “Like anyone else I always thought, “it will never happen to me”. “But here we are.

“Please donate so that no parent has to lose a child!!

“It could happen to any one of us and a cure would just make the world a better place.

“From the bottom of my heart I will be forever greatful to any and all donations ♥️♥️”
