Susie's Story of Strength

Susie's Story of Strength

Susie is sharing her story of strength in support of Brain Tumour Awareness Month

Susie chalked her headaches up to a family history of migraines or possible food allergies. Vision problems followed and she saw an eye doctor, who recommended an MRI. What came next, Susie never expected.

Today, Susie focuses on staying positive -- for herself and for her family. In her words, "I'm here to be strong for them... I'm not planning on going anywhere."

We sat down with Susie shortly before she began her 11th round of chemotherapy. This is her Story of Strength.
