Reading Kelly Stafford’s IG post yesterday took me right back to the day I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year. Kelly Stafford is the wife of the Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford.Kelly announced that in a couple weeks she will undergo surgery to remove a tumor on her brain.She went on to say she started getting dizzy and having vertigo spells then went to get an MRI.It was discovered that she has a tumor sitting on some of her cranial nerves.She went on to talk about how terrified she is to have the surgery and how she is concerned about being away from her children as she recovers following surgery.
This was heartbreaking to read.I remember being so scared to have surgery; I had never had surgery before.But the guilt of not being able to care for my kids while I recovered was the worst feeling ever.I am beyond that now and cancer free, thank God! So to Kelly, you got this girl! The city is praying for you!
