In January 2019, Kelly Stafford began experiencing symptoms.

Her tumor was connected to the nerve that connects her brain to her inner ear. That’s why she felt dizzy and light-headed while going about her daily activities.

This discovery resulted in a 12-hour surgery and a battle to get back to her old life.
