BENEFITING: 3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE
I bumped my head at work and started having really bad headaches. I went to my local emerency room in Battle Creek, MI. and they had just told me I was dehydrated, discharged me told me to go home and follow up with my physician. When I did, he had just prescribed pain medicine for me. A week later my headaches gotten worse and were just not going away, I as well started throwing up, I ended up going to the emergency room at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo,MI. they did a MRI and CAT scan and found the tumor. by then they told me I needed to have surgery and it was a malignant tumor once I had my brain surgery while I was in the operating room the surgeon found out it was cancerous. So telling me and family that was heartbreaking. He was able to remove 75-80%. I then had about 2 full months for me to to recuperate from the surgery. I decided to do my treatments done at Universary of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. I had to do 5 rounds of radiation everyday straight, and now I am currently doing chemotherapy. My doctors said I have to do a total of 12 rounds of chemo. I am going on my 8th round now. I have 2 different types of chemotherapies I have & I rotate every 2 weeks from one another. My life is completely different.I was a single mother living on my own with my then 2 year old daughter, working and just taking each day as it comes. I am no longer working due to my cancer and had to break my lease of my apartment and move in with my daughters father. I had gotten in a huge depression, with the diagnosis, the loss of my hair, the weight gain, the loss of my apartment, my job, my energy, just everything. I'm hoping that maybe a wish could help me and bring me back up. Thank you!
