Redkite and jimmyteens.tv have created a video interview with Brent who has just started chemotherapy after having radiotherapy and surgery for medulloblastoma.

Brent talks about his home town Cunnamulla, how he was diagnosed with cancer after experiencing headaches, his stem cell transplant and how life is back home being a sheep shearer.

Brent is having treatment 12 hours drive from his hometown. He had 32 sessions of radiotherapy, before starting chemotherapy. “My symptoms were that I was getting real massive headaches.” He said he saw the doctor who gave him medication for a chest infection, but he got sick that they took him into hospital.
