Hey everyone. I am a 15 year old girl. I had a ganglioglyoma when I was a week old. It started by my carotid artery in my throat, hit the 7th nerve in my mouth, behind my nasal cavity, and went left behind my left eye. I am blind in my left eye and I can't breathe through my nose, so when I talk, it always sounds like I have a cold, but I don't! :) I get SO many comments from everyone and so many stares. So I was just looking for support out there. I just need someone to connect with. Thanks so much. And by the way, I am cured. I will celebrate 15 years of being cancer free when I am 16. YES!!!
