That Thing on my Mom's Brain

Last year, just a few weeks before my son's ninth birthday, I had a medical emergency while we were reading together in his bed (something we have done nearly every night since he was a baby). Little did I know I was experiencing a GRAND MAL SEIZURE. I thought I was dying and I couldn’t fathom my life being taken from me in that way. All I could think was “please God--not here--not now--not like this--not in my son’s bed.” Fortunately my son alerted my husband and the paramedics were called. After a week in the hospital we received the diagnosis which altered the course of our lives. Written from my son's perspective and illustrated by my son , "That Thing on my Mom’s Brain” is a lighthearted picture book we created together to address our experience and my diagnosis. The book is available now through Amazon and proceeds will support The Musella Foundation For Brain Tumor Research & Information, a 501(C)3 nonprofit public charity that is dedicated to helping brain tumor patients through emotional and financial support, education, advocacy and raising money for brain tumor research.
