Down the Narrow Road


I’m 30 years old. Twenty years ago this year I was diagnosed with a Pilocytic astrocytoma. Because of the size of the tumor and it’s affects on things like coordination and all, doctor’s gave my family a grim outlook (barely walk, talk, learn, etc). I’m blessed to say I’ve exceeded those expectations and that many milestones have come and gone (graduating college and getting my Master’s degree) that my family and I never thought possible. But faith in God brought me through it all. And 20 years later I’m as normal as normal can be defined! 🙂
