How Humor to Fight the Tumor Began...

Joelle Syverson

"Humor to Fight the Tumor" began as a dream of mine as a brain tumor survivor. After attending a fundraiser for diabetes, I decided to start a fundraiser of my own to raise awareness and funds for brain tumor research. I was diagnosed with a non-curable and recurring brain tumor in April 2001, 8 months after giving birth to my 3rd child. At the time my two older children were 5 and 3 years old. Since 2001 I have experienced three recurrences of my tumor, one in April 2003 and another in 2007. A third recurrence happened in 2009. I started a chemo therapy cycle to stop further growth that was occurring in an area too risky for surgery.
