In Memory of Ann Snead
GBM is so mean...
My mother was 57 years old and living a normal life and I was five months pregnant with my second child, when mom started having dizzy spells. During our second trip to the emergenecy room for the dizzy spells, the doctor asked that my 10 year old daughter step out of the room...my heart sank. My healthy mom was DX with stage 4 GBM on her brainstem! The doctor told us nothing could be done and mom had less than one year to live. I just couldn't process the words coming out of his mouth. How could this happen; Mom was so healthy; she was never sick.
My sweet mom fought so hard, and she never gave up. Mom lost her battle on May 5, 2013...however, and thankfully, she did live to see my sweet baby boy born.
I miss her beyond words.
