It was 2 years ago when I heard, "you have a low grade astrocytoma." Boy does your world turn upside down. Everything was a blur when I got diagnosed. Within 5 days I was slated for the OR. They could only do a biopsy cause my tumor is located on my brain stem. It confirmed what the doctor thought. My tumor has not grown (thank you lord). Radiation and chemo has helped. No longer working due to my balance issues but very grateful to be alive. I have a wonderful support group around me.
