For 30 of the last 60 years, I have had many health problems and have been hospitalized many times. During a certain period in my life, I underwent major abdominal surgery for a complete hysterectomy and bladder repair. Shortly after, I found out that I had a meningioma brain tumor. When I first heard of my diagnosis in January 2010, I saw many doctors and had many procedures done. My surgery was scheduled for January 27, 2010.
After being diagnosed with a brain tumor, I have heard from many family members and friends. I used to serve and deliver meals to the poor, elderly and former military personnel. Now, I go shopping for Bingo prizes for the Bingo event in my community.
