“Three months ago, on a regular, happy, beautiful day, my life changed forever. I had developed weird symptoms and ended up in the hospital, where I was told I had a mass in my brain and that I needed surgery. I opted for an "Awake Craniotomy" which was really cool! Who gets to check THAT of their bucket list?? I woke to the growling buzz of a saw opening my skull. The surgeon said, "Lorraine. Breathe." I took a deep breath, and it felt GREAT! He said, "Make a peace sign." Of course! How did he know? He said, Make a fist." Yes! I will fight!"
In the end, I was told this:
YOU HAVE GLIOBLASTOMA BRAIN CANCER. ON THE GRAY SCALE, WHITE BEING THE FRIENDLIEST, MOST TREATABLE CANCER AND BLACK BEING THE MOST EVIL, TERRIBLE CANCER, YOUR'S IS BLACK.
They gave me a few months to live.
But wait! Read on...
When I woke up after the craniotomy, my three kids surrounded me, and the first and only thing I said before conking out was, "I. AM. SUPERWOMAN."
Let the battle begin.
This has been a journey of unprecedented love, of laughter, tears, trust, learning, willpower, and so much more.
Enjoy every moment of your evening my friends, and know that I am sending my love through the ethers.” Lorraine
