I was diagnosed with pseudo tumor cerebri (with inter cranial hypertension), an illness that will never go away. My spinal fluid presses on my brain, causing many issues that has to be handled with a VP Shunt surgery in June 2015. I have had 4 total brain surgeries this year in under 6 months and will continue to fight. We need awareness for all the types of brain “tumors” affecting us all. It’s a silent killer and we need to wake it up and shake its core with a cure!!
