In September 2017, I experienced an unexpected seizure while at work that resulted in a fall and a concussion. This had never happened to me before. Shortly after that, I visited a doctor to check things out and received the diagnosis that I had a brain tumor in my left temporal lobe. I had a biopsy surgery on at the end of November and was hospitalized for a few days. The surgery was a success. Since then, I've been recovering, having radiation for seven weeks and ongoing chemotherapy, not to mention taking anti-seizure medications, getting blood draws, transfusions, and frequent doctor appointments and visits to urgent care.
Family, friends and colleagues have reached out to support me by delivering meals, donating sick leave, sending cards, emails, and lots of hugs. My amazing mom has spent about month with me over the last several months and I'm appreciative of everyone's acts of kindness and support.
I'm determined to be well and fight this! I'm grateful to have been able to do so much for my friends, family and colleagues over the years such as visiting sick co-workers and friends and doing what I can to help them. It would be great to have help with my medical expenses and say, “Bye-bye to Brain Cancer." Thank you so much for considering being a part of my campaign. ❤️
