It will be a year on February 14th of this year, Valentines day that I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Totally by accident. You see I was hit by a car that ran a stop sign (I had no seisures or symptoms of a brain tumor at all) I did not cause the accident, and they took me to the hospital to make sure I was ok. I had some shoulder pain and neck pain They did an MRI and could not believe what they saw, The emergency doctor was even in shock, they told me they found a brain tumor. My husband and I were in disbelief and they immediately transported me to St Luke's Neurosurgeon institute in Milwaukee. There they conducted more tests and confirmed the doomed diagnosis. Within days I had brain surgery After many months of cancer treatments it is a Glioblastoma tumor, the worst kind. I have realized there are no foundations or events to raise money for research or for patients who need help. Why is that - this cancer is no different then any other - people need help with this as I do. Medical bills are terrible - I continue with treatments to find one that may stop this tumor from wanting to grow back. Senator Cain has this tumor, where is he when it comes to trying to raise awareness of this? If you read this, please help and donate to this cause. Thank you
