Jack’s Pituitary Fundraising Group
At the age of 17 Jack was diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease. After battling with his weight for 5 years previous, he visited the doctors who referred him to Bath Royal United Hospitals. After a series of Blood tests and MRI scans he was diagnosed. The tumour caused the pituitary gland to create more Cortisol than was needed, which in turn caused Jack to put on a lot of weight.

The Pituitary Foundation were very supportive. They helped Jack understand what Cushing’s Disease was, how to deal with it and what the next steps where. They were a great help not only to Jack, but also the rest of the family which this tumor also had a big effect on.
