Hampstead brain tumour survivor launches inspirational website
A Hampstead woman who overcame a brain tumour and was told she would never walk or talk again has launched a new website to inspire others through illness.
Lorraine Kemble, 45, who lives in Daleham Gardens, has set up People With Potential, named after her own belief in positive thinking.
Miss Kemble’s brain tumour went undiagnosed for ten years and then a series of botched operations to remove it left her with brain damage at age 22.
“They thought I’d either die or be a complete vegetable,” said Miss Kemble.“But that just made me all the more determined.”
Decades of physiotherapy, spiritual healing and positive thinking has allowed her to lead a full life and inspire others.
Having trained as a Montessori teacher before her illness, she has since learned counselling and healing methods to channel her teaching instinct.
“Teaching is my vocation,” she said. “If I can’t teach in a school then I’ll teach in another way and the website is my way of helping people. I want to show people there is light at the end of the tunnel.
