Here's my story: Beginning of March 2010 - severe headaches for 3 weeks. Coworkers forced me to go to the Doctor. CT scan. Got Results March 22nd and was rushed to the ER. Found out that I have a rare Epidermoid tumor (less than 1% of all brain tumors) that was wrapped around my brainstem and both auditory nerves. Surgery was March 30, 2010 on the right side. Complications: 98% deaf in my right ear, the room swayed to the left 24 hours a day, couldn't walk a straight line, bit tongue severely, etc. 2 months later I was back at work....walking with a cane. Second surgery was Sept 30, 2010 on the left side. Complications: severe headaches, vision problems, etc. 2 months later I was back to work WITHOUT a cane. I still have a slight balance problem but hopefully it will continue to improve. I also still have a small tumor on the top of my brainstem but its too risky to touch at this point.  The lining of the entire 2 sections of tumor was also left which means there is a possibility that it can grow back. A lifetime of MRI's here I come!

Please feel free to join my team or donate for a great cause. Every little bit helps!
