Each day, 500 people are diagnosed with a brain tumor. 500 a day?? I was one of those 500 people almost two years ago. I had a seizure on March 28th in 2017. I was on my way to work, had a seizure in my house and the rest is a blur. I had surgery two days later and the doctors successfully removed a grade 4 glioblastoma. To make a long story short, I was one of the "lucky" ones. My tumor had all the positive characteristics you could have in a really negative situation. 30 radiation treatments and 6 months of chemo....and I've had ELEVEN clear MRIs. I'm ready to celebrate my two-year anniversary on Thursday and continue living out my motto, “I’m Not Done Here.”
My fight isn't over yet. I will be leading Team KBC in the American Brain Tumor Association’s BT5K Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk. Money raised by the BT5K will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
