I wrote this manuscript as a journal documentation of my brain tumor diagnosis, discovery and decision making process, a journey spanning approximately twelve months, leading up to my final chosen method of treatment. Some of the chapters are humorous, some rather poignant and some include a lot of medical details. My whole point was to let readers know what that was like, a long and involved investigative process. I include some self-coaching strategies, helpful resources and lots of email exchanges with friends, family and doctors. May all who read this find something in its chapters that resonates with your head and heart.
