Brittany- Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma

3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE's Photo

THE STORY:

My story begins in May 2012. I was having trouble seeing out of my contacts but I didn't think anything of it. I just figured my eyes were changing. I didn't have insurance though so I didn't go to the eye doctor or do anything about it. I just went on with my daily life of school and work. In December I realized that my vision had gotten a lot worse. The way I describe it is I could see out of the side of my right eye but in the center of my eye it was just like a black hole.

I then decided that it was time to get checked out no matter what the price was. I went in through the emergency room with very bad headaches and numbness,tingling down my arms. They performed an MRI and it showed I had a tumor behind my right eye sitting on my optic nerve. It was also filling up four of my sinuses. I had a biopsy done and it came back cancerous, and I was referred to St Jude.

There is a St Jude in Peoria Il near where I live but they told me they did not have the kind of surgeons that I would need so I was sent to Memphis Tennessee St Jude. I came here in February and have been here ever since. I have had 3 surgeries and am currently undergoing 6 and a half weeks of radiation. Due to my second surgery I lost all use of my right eye.

It is always closed now so I am trying to get used to all the looks and whispers from other people still. I know it shouldn't bother me and I'm sure i'll get used to it. Thanks to St Jude I'm still here today.
