What are the odds that I would find someone else within a 5 year age range who has undergone brain surgery to remove a brain tumor, and spinal surgery to have a double disc laminectomy just like me?!
Well, an estimated 688,000+ people are living in the United States with a primary brain tumor, and an estimated 600,000 people have back surgery each year. Assuming that those numbers don’t double dip, factoring in age, location etc. our chances of meeting are 1 in (you do the math because I can’t!).
At any rate, we both exist, met, and somehow only live TWO minutes away from each other. Incredible.
Thank you for connecting us, Stupid Cancer.
