I Am A Brain Tumor Survivor

My Story #1

So, I’m an 8 YEAR survivor !!! πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒOn October 8th 2009 I had 2 benign meningiomas removed right above my left hair line. I went into surgery to have 1 removed but my Doctor found 2 instead, one behind the other.

Now I am tumor FREE !!!!!!! It has been a long painful journey. But the headaches that lead up to this are still a part of my everyday life.

Meningiomas are tumors that develop in the cells of the membrane that surrounds the brain.

As a kid I had ALOT of headaches. I carried aspirin with me everywhere I went. My Grandma (my mom’ s mom) also suffered from headaches. It was assumed I inherited them from her. She passed away when I was 10 years old. I can’t remember a time when she was headache free.

I feel that I need to write my story and share it for me to finish healing as well as to help anyone going thru the same thing. As I found out most people don’t want to **get involved or talk about an illness** Me included. It can be a lonely journey for anyone.
