Welcome to My Personal Page
Why I am walking? I grow pituitary tumors.
I was first diagnosed with my first pituitary tumor in 1999.
I have had 2 neurosurgeries in 2001 and 2007.
I was diagnosed with my third ACTH producing pituitary tumor/tumor cells in 2009.
In 2013, they found a fourth and inoperable tumor.
These tumors cause a disease called Cushing's disease, which is fatal if not treated. There is no known cause, no suspected triggers, and and is classified as a rare disease.
RESEARCH IS CRITICAL.
Learning that you have a brain tumor is very frightening no matter what type of tumor it is. We must learn what causes them and what can kill these tumors, for all brain tumor patients, and all classes of tumors.
Thanks so much for caring!
