For the past 2 weeks, Kelly had numbness in her left hand but was able to go about most of her day-to-day activities. She thought it was a pinched nerve. On Saturday, October 13th, after the numbness in her left hand, as well as her balance, became worse, she made a trip to the ER. A golf ball sized glioblastoma brain tumor was found behind her right ear. A glioblastoma tumor is a cancerous tumor and for Kelly, it is wrapped around a band between her sensory and movement skills.
