ABOUT JAMES:

HI MY NAME IS JAMES NORQUAY, I'M 11 YEARS OLD
I LIVE WITH MY MUM MELISSA AND MY 16 MONTH OLD BROTHER MAXWELL, WE ARE RESIDENTS OF COOLUM.
ON MARCH 1ST 2011 I WAS DAIGNOSED WITH A BRAIN TUMOUR AND HAVE BEEN IN THE ROYAL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOR THE PAST 4 MONTHS.
I'VE HAD SURGERY ON MY BRAIN TO SEE IF THE TUMOUR COULD BE REMOVED, IT WAS UNSUCCESSFUL SO I HAVE NOW HAD 8 WEEKS OF CHEMO AND THINGS ARE LOOKING POSITIVE.

MY NEXT TREATMENT WILL BE 6 WEEKS OF RADIATION AND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL HAVE MADE THE TUMOUR GO.
BECAUSE THE TUMOUR WAS VERY CLOSE TO MY BRAIN IT HAS DAMAGED MY OPTICAL NERVE, SO I HAVE NO SIGHT IN MY RIGHT EYE AND VERY LITTLE IN MY LEFT EYE.
MY PITUITARY GLAND DOES'NT FUNCTION ANYMORE SO I WILL NEED 100% CARE.
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A VERY ACTIVE KID GROWING UP ENJOYING MY FAVOURITE SPORTS. OZTAG, SOCCER, FOOTBALL, CRICKET, SKATE BOARDING, & RIDING MY RIPSTICK & SCOOTER. THESE ARE THE FUN THINGS THAT I WILL MISS NOW MY WHOLE LIFE HAS CHANGED, BUT OVER ALL I'M JUST HAPPY TO BE ALIVE.
