(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.”
More than 70 friends, neighbors and community members joined us for a successful book launch!
We celebrated women in an outstanding event organized by women! A brain tumor survivor, an investment expert, and a comedian came together to share their life experiences with their friends, the community and the world!
Thank you for all our friends that supported us!
100% of that day’s book sales will be donated to the Connecticut Brain Tumor alliance! In the donation jar in total we received $400 dollars ! Thank you everyone that participated!
Grateful to all the media that has covered my book launch and specially Michael Mejido for helping us with the PR of the event.
Thank you to my dear friends that helped me make my book launch dream come true!
