Anne Markham

Cerebral Palsy, Cancer & Amputee Advocate & Teacher

Hi, my name is Anne! I am in my 30's, and I was born at 29 weeks with Cerebral Palsy with a grade 4 brain bleed. I also have hydrocephalus. Two weeks after turning 30, I was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer, which meant that I had to have my good leg amputated as I am hemiplegic on the right side of my body.

I advocate for other brain injuries and mental health as well as sharing resources. The cancer advocacy advice would be if you don't feel good, go to the doctor ASAP! I thought my health issues were sciatica, but I had a very very very rare sarcoma which caused me to lose my left leg

Surround yourself with positive people who believe in you and always remember that somebody is pulling for you, even if you do not know it. If you have any suggestions let me know.
