For years, I maintained this Blog without identifying myself. Now that I am getting some pieces published I decided it was time to come out” and admit who I am. Hi. I’m Ruthie K. I’m a 2x brain cancer survivor/thriver. At this point, I’ve undergone 7 brain surgeries in less than 6 years. I struggle every single day with side effects from the cancer and ALL my treatment. I’m also known by my a.k.a. Brain Cancer Babe. It’s nice to meet you.
