Walking On The Edge

Thoughts on Life and Parenting After Childhood Brain Cancer


"Millie was seven years old when she was first diagnosed with brain cancer. To rebuild her physical and mental strength, both significantly depleted following seven months of intensive treatment, Millie and I made a habit of going on regular walks in the countryside. As part of those, we also started talking about her cancer and the limitations that this disease and its cure was going to impose on her life.
"This is the book I wish I'd had when my daughter was first diagnosed.”
Marco Previero covers several aspects of brain cancer and its related treatment in layman’s terms, making it easy to understand for fellow parents facing similar circumstances including; the many practical challenges that parents, and survivors of childhood brain tumours face in the long-term depending on the position of the tumour, its related treatment and cure, how the body copes with therapy, and the level of support available in the recovery phase. He provides an objective exploration and reflection of Millie’s treatment, the limitations it has imposed, and what they found helpful in addressing and managing these during treatment and recovery.

Marco Previero

Marco is a European at heart, who discovered writing later in life, after his daughter Millie was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013. Since then, he has published a book, many national articles and appeared both on TV and radio programmes to advocate for better quality of life for childhood brain tumour survivors. When he is not writing, Marco spends his time both as a Trustee of Success Life After Cure Ltd, the charity his new book is in support of, and running his own real estate consultancy business in London. He lives in London with his wife and his three children, dreaming of a cure for the many life altering late side effects childhood brain tumours often bring.
