Almost 12 years ago on May 11th 2006 i underwent brain surgery. I was informed that i had a rare Brain Tumor called a Acoustic Neuroma, close to 3.5 in every 100,000 individuals will be diagnosed. It could be one of the most under-reported disorders impacting your readership. The most common symptom is hearing loss in the Tumor ear. Other symptoms can be life-changing causing headaches, facial paralysis, ringing in the ears, balance problems and more.
I have had some side effects from this surgery such as loosing all my hearing on the left side, constant ringing in my head, dizziness, and headache to name a few. I am trying to reach out to make people more aware of this Tumor, i will be doing a 5k to raise money for families of all kinds of brain tumors, and Brain Tumor research. Please consider donating what you can every little bit helps!
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. To show my support, I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s BT5K Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk.
