Exceptional courage of Tessa Jowell

Exceptional courage of Tessa Jowell”

In addition, the UK Government will host a new Tessa Jowell global symposium, which will bring together the best clinical, scientific and academic minds on brain cancer, in order to identify gaps, best practice and priorities in research.Each year around 11,400 people in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour and just 14% of people survive their disease for 10 or more years.

MPs laughed as Mrs May continued to commemorate the politician for her campaign to increase collaboration between hospitals in the fight against cancer.

"Her impact was reflected in yesterdays announcement of the Tessa Jowell brain cancer research fund and it will live on in an annual Tessa Jowell global symposium to be hosted by the United Kingdom to bring together the best clinical, scientific and academic minds on brain cancer".

Announcing her death on Sunday morning, the family spokesman said: "It is with great sadness, and an enormous sense of loss, that we announce the death of Tessa Jowell".

The UK government has announced a renewed focus on brain cancer research, in honour of Tessa Jowell. "At this agonising time, I hope her family can draw comfort from the fact that her legacy will be lives saved and heartbreak averted for thousands of other families". This follows a meeting Tessa Jowell had with the Prime Minister and the Health Secretary in Downing Street in February.

"She said "you can be a feminist but still be susceptible to a David Beckham moment".

The Hove MP said: "She said at the end of the meeting she turned informally to him and said, 'Do you want to be the prime minister that had the Olympics within your grasp and chose to turn away?'"

The mother of the house, Harriet Harman, told MPs that Jowell was "true Labour" but unafraid of working cross-party for her causes, where the "personal and political completely intertwined". "That to me was Tessa, because she had learned to weaponise the male ego". "For those of us that knew her, she was that miracle". The way that she was until the last moment was just so courageous and fearless.

He told the Today programme she had an extraordinarily successful career in politics.

The Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who first met Jowell in the 1970s when she was a north London councillor and he was a union organiser, described her as a "warm and compassionate" person.
