My Story

First some background information: my daughter was diagnosed with an inoperative brain tumor September 27th, 2013. We were told that it was a very aggressive brain tumor and that she was going to have to undergo extensive radiation and chemotherapy. This was very hard on everyone because she is one of the most lovable and caring people anyone has ever known. We decided that we were going to do everything in our power to fight this. For the first month and a half she was on a feeding tube and could not have anything by mouth. She was able to get start eating again at the end of October which was a major blessing. After a long 2 months she completed her radiation on November 23rd and had her first round of chemo that same day. She had her first big MRI on new years eve and they were amazed that the tumor had shrunk 20-30% and she was doing as wonderful as she was....THIS WAS A TRUE MIRACLE BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT EXPECTING IT TO BE THIS WAY...!!!!! HER DOCTORS AND NURSES WERE TRULY SHOCKED AND FOR THIS WE GAVE GOD ALL THE CREDIT :) She continued chemotherapy treatments, and Ruth fought as hard as possible until her passing in February 2015. She loved to smile and laugh and give hugs and we had many people come up to her and tell her that she is truly a inspiration.
