Even though Kelly has only been in this city for a few weeks, she has already learnt how welcoming the people of new mexico are. During an interview she said ” Yes, yes I had so many people offer already when I say I don’t know anybody they say, oh here, let me give you my information in case you need anything”. They’re also giving her plenty of information on all the things she should check out when she’s not at work. ” Yes, everyone’s been telling me to take the tram, which I haven’t done yet, which I will I feel like I should reward myself after unpacking more boxes with a tram ride.  I think that’s a good report I remember you telling me people here are so friendly. that’s the initial feeling what many of us got when we first moved here. They have been super friendly. unfortunately, i’m getting more boxes.

Kelly Franson Brain Tumor

 It was April 1, 2010 when Kelly was told she had a brain tumor.  Yes, on April Fool’s Day. She knew the doctor wasn’t joking, but she remember thinking maybe, just maybe, he had made a mistake wrong exam room, wrong patient, wrong MRI.  But then he showed her the scan.  Fast forward two years, and having once had a brain tumor is something that rarely crosses Kelly’s mind, no pun intended.

Kelly  was lucky her tumor was “the best kind of brain tumor” to have. It was found before it caused big problems.  It was in a location that made it fairly easy for a neurosurgeon to remove. She  didn’t need radiation or chemotherapy or further surgeries.   The scar from my craniotomy is almost completely hidden by her bangs, which are thankfully now her own hair, and not the clip-on piece that  she used to use to cover the part that was shaved. There is a dent in her forehead, and she can feel some of the hardware used to put her skull back together, but the headaches are now infrequent.

She no longer immediately put ice on her head when she get home from work.  Kelly no longer worry about an infection that might mean another surgery.  She go in for yearly MRIs to make sure there are no signs of regrowth, but otherwise, she is free.
