It took me many years to have the courage to write this book. Part of my reluctance was fear, that people will look at me differently and treat me differently, if they knew that I was a brain tumor survivor. Part of it was fear that my words wouldn’t be powerful and that nobody would read my book.

But mostly, it was the pain of remembering.

I am not sure where the turning point was that liberated me to have the courage and to tell the story, but here I am.

If my story inspires just one person, it was worth the risk.

If you are currently dealing with a life-challenging disease or are caught up in a career that does not inspire you, keep on reading. Even if neither of these categories apply to you, but found this book in your hands, keep on reading, because when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
