In today’s episode I’m talking to my sister Melissa Mitchell about her recent brain cancer diagnosis. On May 26th Melissa suffered a massive seizure. After rushing her to the hospital, doctors found she had a very large tumor on the right side of her brain. We’re discussing EVERYTHING today. (Warning: this is very personal and traumatic subject matter.) From the months leading up to the seizure, to the actual day and what has followed since. Melissa is also bravely opening up about her mental health battles, her desire to become a (single by choice) mother, and all the gritty details about this medical journey. Although this isn’t the typical topic we discuss on AIA, I think this episode is so valuable for ANYONE to listen to. It’s all about staying positive and overcoming...we can all relate to that! I am so extremely proud of my sister. A big thank you to everyone that has been praying for her and sending well wishes. It means so much to us all! I hope you enjoy listening to this very personal episode.
