A WOLLESCOTE woman is getting set to bring an important health message to the streets of Stourbridge.
Nicola Adams, aged 45, is doing her bit to support Pituitary Awareness Week, a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about illness in a part of the body known as the master gland.
The awareness week, which began on September 18 and runs until Sunday September 18, aims to make people aware of the symptoms of illness in the Pituitary Gland which controls the release of several hormones.
Nicola, who was diagnosed with a Pituitary tumour in 2008, will be visiting Russells Hall hospital tomorrow (Thursday) and Stourbridge High Street on Friday September 24.
During her visits Nicola will be offering advice on Pituitary disease and raising funds for The Pituitary Foundation, who support people coping with illness.
The Pituitary Gland is located at the bottom of the brain stem and linked to other major glands around the body.
Symptoms which could be connected to Pituitary problems include excessive sweating, headaches, vision problems and unexplained weight gain.
