Woman losing sight plans tour of world's most beautiful places
- Filed under:
A woman facing the prospect of losing her sight has drawn up a plan to visit the world's most beautiful destinations so she can store them in her memory forever.
Jade Salero, 27, from Hampshire, will soon undergo an operation to remove a cyst from her brain, a procedure that could leave her blind.
Among the things on her must-visit list are the Niagara Falls in Canada and the Grand Canyon in Arizona, while she also wants to attend this year's Isle of Wight festival and learn to ski.
Jade's condition is known as craniopharyngioma, and she has lived with the benign tumour and cyst on the brain for 14 years; a subsequent build-up of pressure in the brain leaves her with painful headaches.
With the development of a second cyst, doctors have said they will need to operate.
Jade told the Daily Mail: "I'm probably going to lose my sight so I'm concentrating on doing all the things I want to do.
"I'm trying not to worry about the things I can't control because there are too many of them, I'm just going to worry about the things I can change."
She added: "It's very difficult and you have to re-evaluate everything but now I'm just motivated to do the things I want to do."
If you only had a limited amount of time to soak up the world around you, where would you choose to go first? Leave your thoughts below...
