In April of 2022 I had an MRI to follow up on a small pituitary tumor. Unfortunately, they found an unrelated golf ball size mass on the left side of my brain and the doctors were confident it was some type of tumor. I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with stage 2 Glioma in July of 2022. I had surgery on July 25th, 2022 and they were able to remove 70% of the tumor. The surgeons weren’t able to remove it all due to the location of the tumor being in the motor area. I was in the ICU for two nights and then recovered at home for 6 weeks. From September 12 – October 24 I went through targeted radiation treatment. I lost hair in the area where they were treating the tumor and experienced a lot of fatigue. While this diagnosis has turned my world upside down, it has brought me a lot of blessings as I have navigated each phase of treatment.
