I am a retired teacher and brain tumor survivor. My surgery to remove a non-cancerous brain tumor was on July 23, 2011 at St. Josephs Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. St. Josephs is said to have the best neurological department in the nation and I can’t complain about the care I was given. In fact, I give it high praise.
My walnut sized tumor was located on my frontal lobe, which affected my behavior and emotions. I was clinically depressed for nearly 8 years. Per the request of my loving parents, I left the life I built in a small southern Oregon town and moved to Colorado Springs to be closer to them.
I adopted a former student when he was twelve and I have never been married. I never found the perfect man who could put up with my passion for Christ and GARDENING!
I started this blog in October of 2012 out of a pressing on my heart to encourage others living through difficult trials. He is leading me down a new career in writing and public speaking. If you would like to read more about me please go to: http://about.me/CherylZ1961/
