Brain Injury: Benign neoplasm of brain
Explanation of Mask: I had two tumor rejections on my brain stem, leaving me with ataxia and in a wheelchair. When I first got my brain injury I had a lot of questions : When will I get better? Will I need more treatment? Will it grow back? And even, What is it? Each question was met with the same response; “We don’t know.” That’s why I chose a galaxy scene for my mask. Space is the great unknown just like a brain injury. The glitter represents the glimmers of hope that I see in my recovery.
