Kerri Brantley is a Captain in the Missouri Army National Guard and native of Boise, Id. She recently moved to Maryland, where she is a writer/editor for Joint Hometown News Service at Fort George G. Meade. Kerri is still active in the Army National Guard. She joined to provide for her family and serve her country. Kerri is a single-mom and combat Vet who is currently working on her masters in Management in Public Relations. Kerri’s mom was diagnosed with a rare type of brain tumor that was never supposed to reoccur. Unfortunately it has, in spite of some of the latest technology and treatments. Kerri’s mom is not in shape for the interview, but I felt this was such an incredible journey, that it needed to be told. Our prayers need to be with them. I had occasion to meet Kerri when I was speaking to her about a common passion of ours. It was then that I heard the story about her mom. Hopefully we can enlighten you on both. This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me." We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers. :) Some nights we will have a featured guest, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. We often have music in the second have from some great Indie Musicians! Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org
According to U.S. News and World Report, more than 180,000 brain tumors (malignant and benign) are diagnosed each year. Brain tumors account for 25% of all cancers in children. Our featured guest this week underwent a craniotomy in 2012, at the young age of 17, to remove a grade II astrocytoma. The tumor type grows relatively slowly and usually doesn't have well-defined borders. Due to its infiltrative nature, recurrences are relatively common.
Catherine Blotner is a patient advocate for the young adult cancer community. As a featured guest on the Cure Magazine weekly Twitter chat, she shared the side effects of treatment and the impacts at home and school. In this episode, we'll chat with Catherine about the day-to-day issues young adults with brain tumors face, along with managing worry and fear of recurrence.
Not only has Catherine survived her ordeal, she is thriving. She has created a platform and uses her experience with her brain tumor to provide support, spread information about, and make resources readily accessible for others who have been affected by cancer.

Join hosts Kim and Rex tonight to discuss the recovery process after having an brain aneurysm/AVM.
Recuperating from a brain aneurysm or AVM is a multifaceted task. The arduous journey of healing should never be rushed and attempts to speed up recovery can actually stint physical progress. This period afterwards is the recuperation stage. How you approach the recuperation stage can be important in determining how quickly you bounce back from the illness.
