Claire Snyman from Canada, talks about her personal experience when she was diagnosed with a rare benign brain tumour, a colloid cyst..
Claire went on to write the book ‘Two Steps Forward – Embracing life with a brain tumor’. She was inspired to start to write her book based off her journals. Two years later, and 70 000 words later, Two Steps Forward is now available in e-book and print copy!
"It was in 2010, after a vertigo attack and the onset of migraines, that I was diagnosed with a rare benign brain tumour, a colloid cyst. I was 34 at the time and the mother of a 4-year-old and I heard the words that no one ever wants to hear: “You have a brain tumor.” My first thoughts were of my husband and son. I felt numb. As part of my treatment, I became part of the group of ‘watch and wait’ brain tumor patients around the world who are monitored with yearly MRI scans"
