Dorion, Stephanie

Stephanie Dorion had surgery for a Central Neurocytoma on April 4, 2003 when she was 6 weeks pregnant with her son. This was a very scary and worrisome time for all of her loved ones--made worse by the SARS scare. Stephanie wore lots of these hats a friend kindly sewed for her to cover her bald head after surgery. She looked beautiful and continued to improve slowly. Stephanie gave birth to a tiny but healthy baby boy Quinton on October 28, 2003. Aaron, husband and father, has been a great support and strength for their family through all of their struggles. Stephanie has some short-term memory problems but with therapy, she has come a long way. She is a wonderful mother and Quinton has brought love and joy to all of us. We are thankful to all who helped. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is a wonderful source of support--especially our local support group. Thank you.

Courtney’s Story of Stability
