I can do this! Sure thing!
July 18, 2011 I found out I had a 5cm. brain tumor in my cerebellum.
I don’t remember much else from that time but I knew I
wanted needed a way to keep in touch with my friends and family. Texting, emailing, phone calls were going to become too much for my mom and I to manage so making this blog seemed like a good way to go.
I never really gave much thought (then) to the title; I just KNEW I need(ed) a lot of hope. (Come to find out later that I even had strangers praying for me. How amazing is that?! If that’s not a hopeful thought I don’t know what is.)
It just made sense and fell into place: I chose hopeforheather and here we are today. Going strong! My blog means I am not alone; I have a voice; my story matters; I matter. I am stronger than I realized and while I can’t take off the Cowden’s Syndrome or Lhermitte-duclos coat (as much as I’d like to) – I have hope that I’ll continue to learn more about me and what I am capable of enduring and achieving!
