Brain Tumor

I am a 35 year old mother of three young boys: 3 yrs old, 2 yrs old, and 11 months old.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and went through surgery.  This is what i now look like because i am missing part of my skull. Recovery is still going to take a while.  I am going through therapy, and will be going through more surgery to replace my skull in a few months as long as the tumor does not grow back. Although we have a great support group that is helping as much as they can, my husband may be forced to miss more work to stay home and take care of our children after surgery= much lost needed income for bills and groceries.  Even a little can go a long way.  God bless!
