In Remission


I was 4 months pregnant when I had a seizure and was told it was most likely due to a brain tumor. I gave birth to my beautiful son 1 month later underwent 2 surgeries to have a grade III anaplastic astrocytoma tumor removed. Having the brain tumor made me realize how strong the power of prayer is and how IMPORTANT my family and friends are to me, they kept me strong!! My surgeon told me the tumor would most likely come back within 3 to 5yrs……this December I will be in remission 8yrs. I try to live everyday in a POSITIVE way……because it’s really the only way anyone should live!
