Digital image created in Procreate. The images you will find in this artwork represent some of the medical challenges I deal with daily. A variety of medicines and injections have grown to be a part of me these past eight years. But I don't see these things in a negative way, I see them as something that had made me a stronger person. Bio (include your age, tumor type and date of diagnosis)
My name is Paisley Kavanaugh and I am 16 years old. I collapsed at home on February 26th, 2014. I was soon diagnosed with a Craniopharyngioma brain tumor. We had to do emergency surgery to remove it. Then, 18 months later we found out it had regrown. We then chose to do proton radiation. I was eight when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and today I am sixteen. I have had my brain tumor for as long as I haven’t.
