My name is Jennifer. I have been fighting a cancerous brain tumor since April 1999. During chemo and radiation I had alot of family support. When that didn't totally stop the growth of the tumor, the doc gave me 2 options-surgery or death. I was very scared of having an operation on my brain, but had just given birth to my second child(she was 6 wks old when tumor was found). I chose to have the resection surgery. Of course my family was in the waiting room, but I felt so alone and frightened at what could go wrong. I closed my eyes and began to pray. Before I opened my eyes I felt someone take my hand and then I felt nothing but peace surrounding me. When I opened my eyes there was no one there, but my hand was being held. I no longer felt alone or afraid because my God had come to me at my worst hour. I am 27.5 now, my baby just turned 4 and I'm doing wonderfully.
