I am a 31-year-old physician living (and dare I say thriving?!) with brain cancer. My brain tumor journey started in January of 2020 when I was studying medicine in Thailand. While there, I began to have strange neurological symptoms and ended up diagnosing myself with a brain tumor. Honestly, the story only gets crazier from there.
Even as a physician, a brain tumor diagnosis is confusing and terrifying. Throughout my journey, I've used writing as a way to cope with my unexpected new life with chronic, incurable illness.
My memoir, Difficult Gifts: A Physician's Journey to Heal Body and Mind, can be found on my blog or anywhere books are sold.
I loved participating in the MN Brain Tumor 5K in 2020 and 2021. With friends and family around the world, we raised over $5000 over the past 2 years for brain tumor research and had fun in the process.
Let's spend another beautiful, spring day walking/running together in spirit raising money for brain tumor research to battle this disease together! All money raised goes directly to brain tumor research.
