Who I Am
It was chilly, just like any other November day in Coleman, Oklahoma. I started my day just like I always did, I woke up, got dressed, and went to school. Basketball wasn’t fun, just like normal.

The option to live with the tumor was very risky due to the tumor being located near and on some nerves. If she decided to take this option, the tumor could affect   many different nerves and eventually might paralyze her. The second option was to have the tumor surgically removed. This option also had many risks...
