On 8/15/19, I was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor… Trigeminal Schwannoma. On 10/3/19, I had my first surgery and the tumor was determined to be a Clear Cell Grade 2 Meningioma. The first doctor didn’t take much of the tumor so I had a second (2/7/2020) and then a third (3/2/2020) surgery, all within 5 months, to remove more tumor. The third surgery was successful removing a lot more of the tumor but recovery has not been without challenges. Proton radiation starts soon. This is my journey.
