National Brain Tumor Awareness Month

National Brain Tumor Awareness Month

For some, the journey with a brain tumor may be a month; some a year, some 5 years, and some for over a decade. My journey started in the fall of 2012 which was the beginning of my senior year of high school. I remember feeling sicker than I had ever felt in my entire life, and it lasted for weeks. Those weeks led to months, and months eventually led to years. I would vomit just about every day until the discovery of a brain tumor saved my life. That’s right, I went through most of my entire journey with a brain tumor that myself, my family, and medical professionals didn’t even know was there. This was until the day I first noticed I was seeing double. At first it was gradual, like when I looked out to my right while on the golf course or in my college classes, but it became constant just hours later. Things were heading downhill fast.
