In May 2023, doctors found and removed a tumor in my brain. After biopsy, I was diagnosed with a brain cancer called glioblastoma. In addition to thorough medical care, I’ve received wonderful support from friends and family. I am very grateful that my because of my SAG-AFTRA membership, I have terrific health care coverage.
I am fortunate that my condition allows me to continue creating art as an audiobook narrator, work I truly enjoy doing. I am active and can walk my dogs, enjoy my homestead, and most of the time I can continue to play tennis! I live how I want to, vibrating at a level that sometimes (often) feels supernatural or superhuman. Also, a few brightly colored wigs notwithstanding, I will not ever be going back to having hair—too much work!
I am open to narrating books written about cancer as someone who is living with it (not dying from it!).
