Katie Atkinson suffered two brain tumours - one in 1990 when she was four, and again in the year 2000.
She experiences weakness in all four limbs, her left side and face, and has sight and hearing problems as well as memory problems.
We asked Katie what 'A New Me' means to her...
A: It doesn't matter how you look on the outside it's what's inside that truly matters.
A: Riding and caring for my horse Johnny keeps me focused and gives me a sense of normality and well-being. Through it I can set myself achievable goals. He doesn't judge me.
A: I attend Second Chance Headway in Wakefield. They are a fantastic support network and I have made many friendships through going.
