Tuesday, May 8th at night I had a MRI and appointment with my doctor scheduled for the 17th. Wednesday came and I was looking forward to my graduation at night. During the day I got a call that requested me to come in the next day right away in the morning. Now as I said, I had my graduation Wednesday night so I kept the appointment from my parents until the next day, that way we and especially they could celebrate my accomplishment. I got a ride from my brother to my doctor appointment the next day and got the news that my Tumor has come back. I was in shock. Now I didn’t expect good news seeing how my appointment got bumped up, but I wasn’t expecting to hear/ see that my tumor has come back. My doctor was upset that I didn’t come with any friends or family for support but I didn’t plan for such drastic news. I was told that this was something that needed to get taken care of right away. Now the day was Thursday May 10th and surgery was going to be May 14th, Monday morning to remove the tumor.

Back in June 2006, the summer before my senior year of high school I started this rollercoaster ride and was diagnosed with Leukemia. Then fast forward two years of treatment with chemo and a few hip surgeries including having both my hips replaced. I still managed to graduate high school in 2007 while fighting cancer and treating. I took 2 years college tuition as my make a wish and determined right there that I was going to beat cancer and be a college graduate. But little did I know that I was going to have another fight with cancer in the form of brain tumor come May 2013. A Grade II astrocytoma to be precise. I ended up having to put college on the back burner to fight this battle and I came out on top again. Now what brings me to why I'm starting this blog. I recently managed to fulfill my dream and graduated college on May 9th 2018. Unfortunately only to find out the very next day that my tumor had come back and appeared to be a higher grade.
