Brain Tumour

By Sue DeKraker

On December 4, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. The Doctor’s had me booked for surgery in two weeks to have it removed. I asked for a second opinion. In London, I met a neurosurgeon who informed me that the tumour would not be removed…I was born with it.

The tumour was too large to remove. The void space of the missing tumour would cause more problems with the brain moving back into position than leaving the tumour in its place. They prescribed narcotics for the headaches (which I never took) and sent me home. Everyday I battled extreme headaches. The headaches were a lot worse when a storm was coming. Twice a year I would have a CT scan to see any changes in its size. During the summer of 2004, my headaches weren’t there anymore. It was more strange to have no headaches…the Doctor’s sent me for tests. The CT scan showed that the tumour had shrunk a little bit. That fall, September 24, I started having problems. At first, I had trouble catching my breath, and my blood pressure was low. The Doctor thought I was having allergies. By the 8th of October I couldn’t eat. Food was just turning my stomach constantly. I lost nearly 60 pounds that fall and winter. The Doctor’s could not figure out what was going on. The Allergist said not to eat peanut products or drink tea. The Internist said it was not an ulcer, or any other stomach problems. The Heart Specialist said my heart was healthy and fine. The Neurosurgeon said it was not caused from the tumour shrinking. Back to the Internist who told me nothing was wrong…and to go home. But I knew something was wrong. At this point I was living off meal replacement shakes and soup. I had no energy, and often would feel very dizzy, shaky and feel like I was going to pass out. Now it is spring of 2005, I now have 23 symptoms: All I could do was pray and cry. Most of my time was spent lying down. My friends would have to sit with me. I was afraid to be alone. I was afraid that when the shaking and dizziness started I was going to pass out and die. I was afraid to go to the Doctor’s. I was afraid of having a CT Scan/MRI done and I didn’t know why. I was never afraid before....I’ve had 100’s of Cat Scans…but I was still afraid. Summer 2005, my family Doctor called and informed me all my symptoms were listed as side effects of the brain tumour!!!!!!!!! Amazing, I have an answer. The Doctor has found a web site for brain tumours. The shaking and dizziness were from Silent Seizures! Yet, because of the size they would not remove it. Because it was shrinking my optic nerve was readjusting and causing eye problems…and hearing problems….I had to live with this! At this point I could barely even walk. August 2005, I heard of the Healing Room. I had never heard of such a thing but at this point I was willing to try anything, otherwise I knew would die. I was too young to die and I had a family with two small children. The first night of healing prayer, I walked in with 23 symptoms. dizziness, shaking, loss of appetite, trouble catching my breath, I needed reading glasses, I saw black spots everywhere, numbness in my hands and feet, memory loss, insomnia, ringing in the ears, hearing problems, low blood pressure, swollen face and hands, a lot of FEAR, and so on. Two strangers laid their hands on my head and prayed. I was so scared. My head felt like it was on fire. But, I just kept receiving. That night I walked out by myself. Half my symptoms were gone. After two more visits….all my symptoms disappeared. Now I have a dent in my skull where the tumour used to be. Thank you Jesus for saving my life, in more ways than one!!!
