I was 28 when diagnosed. I was getting migraines constantly for months and trying to figure out why. I went to a new neurologist and he recommended I get an MRI. When I did they found a mass in my brain. After returning home and telling my family, everyone was willing to do anything they could to help. I met with the staff of Penn Medicine and they recommended getting surgery to remove as much of the mass as they can and then get radiation to remove the rest. Radiation was tough. It was everyday for a while, each day I was exhausted. I am currently undergoing chemo for five days a month and doing an MRI every two months.
