After a four-year fight with brain cancer, a CAMPAIGNER who inspired comic Peter Kay’s first show in years has died.

Laura Nuttall, 23, died in the early hours of Thursday morning after being diagnosed with glioblastoma during a routine eye exam in 2018.Laura’s mother, Nicola, described her daughter as “fierce and tenacious to the end” in a Twitter tribute.

Laura’s mother, Nicola, described her daughter as “fierce and tenacious to the end” in a Twitter tribute.

She said: “I’m heartbroken. It was truly the honour of my life to be her mum.

“We are devastated at the thought of life without our girl.

“She was a force of nature.”

Laura was just six weeks into her first term at Kings College London when she began to have excruciating headaches.

As part of her application to join the Royal Navy, the politics, philosophy, and economics student received a physical check, which included an eye test.

When the optician noticed pressure behind her eyes, she was diagnosed with six brain tumors.

She was later diagnosed with glioblastoma, a fast-growing type of cancer that was stage four.

Laura, from Barrowford, Lancashire, was given only 12 months to live after being diagnosed.

However, between then and her death, she accomplished a “bucket list” of objectives.

This includes graduating from Manchester University, commanding a Navy ship, and delivering a BBC weather report.

She also went fishing with Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer, saw Johnny Marr, saw Fleabag perform live on stage, met Michelle Obama, and raised thousands of pounds for brain cancer organisations.

Kay, who works with Laura’s father Mark, made a homecoming appearance in 2021 to generate funds for her therapy, which is not covered by the NHS.

He had left the public eye after canceling his live gigs due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

Kay, who paid a visit to Laura at her home, played at Manchester’s O2 Apollo in support of Doing It For Laura and The Brain Tumour Charity.

She then traveled to Germany for immunotherapy and dendritic cell vaccination in Cologne.

“When he’s on TV, he’s Peter Kay,” Laura noted at the time.
