BENEFITING: UPMC

ORGANIZER: Julie

EVENT: 2017 Brain Cancer Awareness 5K

Brooke Bustamante

THE STORY:

I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in late October 2015, and suddenly my expectations and perceptions of myself, family, friends, health and wellnes, and the world around me were forever altered!  I felt confused, angry, and completely helpless. Having recently graduated with a Masters in Infant Mental Health Counseling from Chatham University I was supposed to be helping others, not re-learning how to care for myself! Somehow I mangaged to request a Wellness Counselor at the Hillman and was introduced to Dr. Francis and the Integrative Oncology program. 


Yoga, essential oils, and support groups have been wonderful for my healing process, and  I maintain strength, hope, and positivite energy from the support of my husband Rolando, family, friends, staff and members at Cancer Caring Center and Our Clubhouse, and the staff and other patients at the Hillman!  


I had a clear brain MRI today, and I am feeling positive and hopeful that research will discover new and innovative treatments for Brain Cancer! I will continue to fight, and I believe that HOPE, POSITIVITY, NATURE, EXCERCISE, NUTRITION, SUPPORT and MINDFULNESS are essential to mental and physical health!! I am grateful for your support!!
