Never take life for granted. Judy’s first surgery for a brain tumor was in 1993. She was 26 years old. A one-woman show by Judy Lombardo based on her own life experience as a two-time brain tumor survivor. I was impressed with her ability to be upbeat and informative with all that had happened. Hence the title, Victory?! Again. This is not a story of self-pity! Her resilience is a great lesson for all of us.
She raises the question of how could she make a difference and it certainly made me think about how I could make a difference every day. She spoke openly and honestly about treatment and consequences and how she functions today. She originally presented a version of this show at Indy Fringe in 2019.
Did you know that there are 500 new diagnoses of brain tumors and/or brain cancers every day in the United States? The color for brain cancer ribbons and bracelets is grey, not as flashy as the bright pink for breast cancer. I confess to not knowing that before. And for more information google the American Brain Tumor Association at ABTA.org.
Cancer survivors and other survivors of serious illness and friends and those wanting to know more and be supportive, come to hear and support Judy. Judy’s upbeat positive stories and her honesty and resilience are worth listening to and can serve as positive guidance in your own life.
