A year ago today, one of my best friends was in a brain surgery that ened up saving her life. I can't even fathom or imagine what courage it would have taken to make such a decision. Over the past year, I have gotten to hear more of Mary's story, how she lives her new life after the surgery, and sometimes even what she struggles with. I don't think someone that is weak would be able to handle this. It would be the strongest ever created and made. I am sure there are challenges I can't even think of following a major brain surgery. I am SO proud of Mary for making such a hard decision, I would imagine it would take every ounce of courage. I can't imagine my life without that happy face. She made a decision that would literally SAVE HER LIFE.
