I am 42 yrs old and I was diagnosed with spina cord glioma in May 08. Since then my mobility has drastically changed for the worse and although I find it extremely dificult to handle, I am more sad that I cannot work than whats actually going on with me. I am a nurse and have always taken care of my family and others. Now the shoe is on the other foot and I dont like it. I've learned to sit back and let others help, but my instinct to do still kicks in. Brain cancer is extremely difficult to deal with, but I smile and push through to the best of my ability. I am on my second course of chemo and second course of radiation. God is able!!!
