Surviving a Brain Tumour

Just minutes before my husband found me passed out, covered in my own vomit, anyone would have believed I was perfectly healthy...including me. What I didn't know was that, since birth, a tumour had been growing in my brain, waiting for 2015 before it would make its shocking, and nearly deadly, presence known. What followed were months of brain surgeries, radiotherapy, and multiple scares as the doctors raced a tumour that had been left unchecked to grow for thirty-six years. Healing involved more than the medical miracles I experienced. In fact, healing is still a process I must tackle every day. I'm here today, after a harrowing six-year journey, because of my husband, who rescued me not once, but twice, before my illness was even diagnosed, and again every day since. I'm here today because of my family, who helped me face interminable hospital stays and repeated recovery procedures. I'm here because I kept my faith in God and felt Him strengthen me when I had no strength of my own left. I'm ready to share my story in the hopes that I might help any others who experience brain injury of any kind, but especially those who have suffered a tumour and survived the treatment-not to mention the psychological and personality changes that result. I started this book to help me remember every step of my journey. I hope now that it might be a light in someone else's darkness.
