Mark, 33, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2010. He suffered a seizure at work and was taken to hospital; it was two months before the brain tumour was diagnosed.
Mark had surgery to remove the tumour and was off work for approximately 9 months and regrettably in January 2012 he had to have further surgery on the tumour. Mark said that initial indications are that he is making a good recovery. He returned to work in the latter part of 2012 and is now back on a duty he feels able to do. 2 periods of long term sick absence have caused him financial difficulty. Mark had endeavoured to keep in contact with his mortgage provider, but he recently failed to meet the agreed payment to reduce his arrears and he has been threatened with repossession proceedings if he does not clear/reduce the arrears owed.
