I am now battling a recently removed malignant brain tumor that was golf ball size IT also metasisized into liver,stomach,lungs,spinal cord

I was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor after a couple of symptoms came up all of a sudden back in Feb 2011,First my left leg from the knee down became 100% paralyzed, this really scared me, But I thought maybe I just needed to go visit a my Chiropractor for some adjustments! IT was in the early am, about 3 am that I experienced 2 violent,horrible and uncontrollable seizures. My complete body was shaking, twitching and lurching.THE first one lasted for 2-3 minutes,then about an hour later I Had another for a minute or so. That's when I Called 911. Ambulance rushed me to the ER at Covenant medical center here in Waterloo,Iowa. They did a MRI and discovered the tumor. They didn't want to operate here,claiming it would not help me, or improve my useless left leg? They then did a cats scan and discovered the other spots through out my body. Then gave me a devastating 3 to 9 months to live. I and my loving and caring family did some research online and discovered The mayo clinic in Rochester,Mn. So with appointment made, My oldest daughter from Chicago drove to here,picked me up and took me up to mayo. Bless her heart. A young neurosurgeon,( after numerous tests) comes into my room and said of course he can remove tumor surgically. I was ecstatic and so pleased I stood up from my hospital bed and hugged him hard. lol
