Last fall, I was unexpectedly diagnosed with brain tumor when my neurologist noted some changes in my migraine symptoms and decided to send me for an MRI. After a series of tests we were still unable to identify the type of tumor and opted to have surgery right before Christmas. The 6 hour craniotomy was successful in removing the whole tumor and pathology told us the tumor was a ganglioglioma that, gratefully, only needs annual scans. So as this June marks 6 months in my recovery since my brain surgery, I am excited to be able to participate in this year's BT5K Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk to celebrate!
I am joining my good friend Liz Schilling and her team, Liz's Unexpected Journey, for the walk on June 1st. If you'd like to join us, click on "Join Our Team". Or, you can support me in my efforts by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
