Steve and Iris Rawlings Story of Hope

Steve and Iris Rawlings Story of Hope

Stephen was diagnosed with an anaplastic oligodendroglioma (grade III) in November of 2015 at the age of 53 years old, and shares his personal experiences through diagnosis and treatment including an awake craniotomy; while Iris, an emergency room nurse, shares her personal experience as a caregiver not only to her husband but also to their daughter who was diagnosed with a pineal adenoma tumour (grade I) eight years ago. The Rawlings story is one of hope, support and perseverance.

Steve and Iris Rawlings shared their story of hope at the Brain Tumour National Conference, on Saturday, October 22, 2016 and it is our pleasure to share this video story of hope.

Thank you to Steve and Iris for sharing your story at the
