Connecticut woman talks about how she rediscovered life after brain surgery

(WTNH) – One Connecticut woman’s story is helping other’s find strength in the darkest of circumstances.

Nathalie Jacob of Westport was shocked when she learned she needed invasive brain surgery for a brain tumor. She felt confident the surgery would go well.But when Nathalie woke up, she was partially blind, couldn’t read or write, and the only number she recognized was eight.

As she had to relearn simple tasks, she saw a light at the end of the tunnel, and she was inspired to write the book “8: Rediscovering Life After A Brain Tumor.”

IE Book Catalogue

👩‍🎓 I chose to do my MBA at IE business school in Madrid because it was the 8th best MBA globally ranked and the 2nd best in Europe.

It ended up being the best time in my life and made some of the best friends anyone could ever have.

Although I may not be able to use my MBA skills now that I’m disabled, I have the honor of having my book 📖 as part of “IE Book Catalogue”.

Dream come true. Even dreams you never thought would be dreams. I never thought I would ever write a book.

Thank you IE for supporting your alumni! 👩‍🎓
In my case, believe me, it means twice as much! ❤️
