I cannot believe it has been 3 years already since I made this video. Given that it is brain tumor awareness month, I feel the need to share it again. Many people are diagnosed with an Acoustic Neuroma every year. Many who are newly diagnosed are scared of having to face this challenge alone, afraid of the outcome, thinking that life will never get better. Well I think that I am a good example of how good things can turn out. Sure I now have single-sided deafness. Yes, sometimes my balance is a little shaky. You know, sometimes I have a hard time finding the energy to get out of bed. And every once in awhile, I have a bad day. Through it all though I remember to smile, and be thankful that I am alive. To not get caught up on the things that were taken from me, but instead, to focus on all that I have. I don’t have any disabilities, I only have challenges.
