My Survivor Support Advocacy Qualifications
I am a survivor of Cancer, Brain Tumor, Brain Cancer, Body and Facial Paralysis, Vision Loss, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
By supporting my daughter through a seven-year journey of battling a brain tumor alongside cancer and surgeries is my testament to resilience and an unwavering commitment. The emotional and physical toll of navigating such challenges requires immense strength and unconditional love. My role involved being a pillar of support, offering comfort during difficult moments, and celebrating even the smallest victories. My constant presence during surgeries, medical treatments, and emotional highs and lows were a profound dedication to my daughter's well-being. It's a journey marked by endurance, courage, and the unbreakable bond between a parent and a child, showcasing the extraordinary lengths I was able to provide solace and encouragement in the face of adversity.
Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
My daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016. During her surgery she lost the use of her entire left side including (but not limited to) the ability to swallow, walk, use her arm/hand, use of her left eye and became deaf in her left ear. She spent weeks in the ICU, hospital and months in physical rehabilitation. Although she was able to have a 90% recovery and get back to her regular lifestyle, she had to have another surgery in 2020 to retract the growth of her tumor and in 2021 had 4 additional surgeries from hemorrhage and growth. With each surgery, she lost additional body functions and use. Unfortunately in 2021 her tumor turned malignant. She passed in 2022 at the age of 35.
