Emily Corrigan, 32, struggled with stress, extreme fatigue, and dizziness for several years, without even realizing that these symptoms indicate a serious illness, Metro reported.
Emily thought she was just tired as she is the mother of four children. However, she ended with hospitalization after a sudden attack. During the examination, she was found to have astrocytoma - a brain tumor with the size of an orange. According to doctors, the tumor grew from seven to ten years.
The astrocytoma was removed surgically, but a relapse was detected several years later. As a result, Emily again had to have surgery, and now she is undergoing chemotherapy courses.
Emily urges to be more attentive to her health, and not to postpone a visit to the doctor in case of malaise.
