Lea Grover and her then fiance had been engaged for less than a day when he suffered a seizure that led to the diagnosis of glioblastoma.
He became part of the 25% who survive a year with this type of brain cancer, then part of the 5% who survive more than 5 years. 12 years later, he has had to undergo multiple types of treatment, and multiple surgeries, each getting more difficult to cope with and harder to bounce back from.
With three children and a career, Lea shares the struggles of being a caregiver for someone you love, while coping with your own emotions and those of your children.
For anyone in a similar situation, know that you are not alone.
