I can’t say my son had a brain tumor. To be accurate, I say he has a brain tumor.
Twenty years ago, when Matt was 11, an MRI revealed the growth, clinging to his brainstem, located so deeply within convoluted folds of grey matter, it is inoperable.
He’s had it for twenty L-O-N-G years.
He’ll have it for the rest of his life.
I hope that’s a L-O-N-G, L-O-N-G time.
