I feel so blessed to have my family. To me, they are everything. When I was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in 2010, I didn’t
know what to think. Yes, I was thirteen, and yes I thought I had the answer to everything, but at that moment I had no idea what to do. I was going to have brain surgery in two days. My family, and I mean everybody, parents; siblings; aunts; uncles; cousins; and close friends all came in to show me that would all be there, to support me in whatever happened next.
It was from that moment on that I knew exactly what to do. They motivated me to fight. No matter what happened, I wouldn’t give up, I owed them that. And thanks to my family’s unending love and support, I am sitting here, able to write this, today.
