BAD NEWS good news

My sister has a brain tumor, meningioma. It is the size of a lemon and the only good news is it is probibly benign. Dr. Stiner has removed hundreds of tumors and feels there is a very low risk of complications.

and her friend Katrina.
The tumor is the light area




Dr. Stiner sees no need to rush into surgery. The tumor is slow growing and has probably been there for years.  It was discovered this summer when she was suffering from headaches and had an MRI done. Turns out the headaches were due to a long day in the hot sun and high blood pressure, not the tumor. She is going to have it removed in January.
