Being a BT survivor....

There is a pro and a con, from being a survivor. Pro: Everything is restarted from the very beginning again. Like literally from the first baby steps, to speaking your very first words again. Since I was physically paralyzed, and could not stand, eat, walk, or talk, I had to go through years of physical, occupational, and speech therapy. I don't know how this is a positive, but I am up...

This past Thursday we just had our AYA chat for this month, one particular question really got to me and still has been running in my mind. The question was how do you feel when you are at a wedding, single and sitting alone because of who we are?

Cancer and brain tumor patients of all ages use a variety of coping tools to help them with their diagnosis and treatment.  One that I’ve seen across the board – all ages, all stages of diagnosis and life after, is the use of music.

I have no shame and can tell all of you who do not know, I myself is a cancer survivor of Medullablastoma for 26 + years. My tumor was in a very rare spot, from what I know is I am one the lucky ones to be here today. I do have tremors and balance problems which I was told this...

For this past Wednesday, we had our monthly online chat for brain tumor survivors. The topic was “Friendship after being diagnosed”. I was only 8 years old when I had my brain tumor. After my first treatment, we moved to Marlboro. At that time I was in elementary school, with all new faces, I knew absolutely no one here; it was kind of scary at first. One of the friends I met was Nate...
