My Story

Eight years ago, I began experiencing intense migraines, naseau, loss of balance and other strange effects that led to a few minor car accidents and a whole lot of weight loss. After two years, several doctor visits and increasingly intense symptoms, I finally had an MRI. The results were dramatic. Within 24 hours I was notified that I had a tumor in the center of my brain. While benign, it had grown to a point where it was causing pressure and preventing my cerebrospinal fluid from flowing properly. Because of the brain swelling and high risk of coma and death, I was immediately cleared for brain surgery. Within two weeks I had a successful craniectomy. The recovery was intense but complete and I just celebrated my 6 year surgery anniversary on April 17th 2019.

Now, I am uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. Anything you can donate - even $10 or $20 - will help the cause. If you would also like to join me on the fundraising walk in San Francisco on Sunday, June 23rd, please reach out to me at noelchristinebilodeau@gmail.com. It is a fun time and a worthy cause! Thanks, Noel
