Nicola Nuttall

Since losing her daughter Laura to the aggressive brain cancer glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), Nicola has become a passionate fundraiser, speaker and campaigner, raising awareness of her daughter’s cancer and working with charities such as The Brain Tumour Charity and Brain Tumour Research to call for better, kinder treatments for those diagnosed with brain tumours.


She is a trustee of the Our Brain Bank charity and runs the Be More Laura Foundation, which provides information on and funds research into glioblastoma. Nicola can be found on X (Twitter) as @shitscaredmum – the account she set up as an outlet for the rollercoaster of emotions experienced while caring for her daughter.


Nicola Nuttall studied Philosophy at Durham University, has written for The i and The Sunday Times and holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest marathon dressed as a witch. She lives in Barrowford, Lancashire, where she runs an indoor play centre, Giddy Kippers, with her husband, Mark and daughter Gracie.


Her memoir ‘The Stars Will Still Be There’ will be published by Harper Collins in May 2024.
