Personal Mission Statement:
Learning to accept life’s challenges and values by embracing hope,
creativity and personal worth.
Peyton Welch, MA, RDT

I was diagnosed with brain cancer in October 2019. I had the tumor removed in November (2019) which is medically defined as malignant, anaplastic ganglioglioma. This type of brain cancer is very rare, accounting for approximately 1 – 2% of all brain tumors. I had thirty sessions of radiation (December 2019 – January 2020) and have been having MRI’s every three months. However, MRI’s are now moving to every four months (as of September 2020)! Prior to this brain surgery, I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2004. I was twenty-four at the time and living in Los Angeles with my wife. After my third grand-mal seizure, my wife and I moved to Little Rock as my seizures continued. I had over seventy seizures in 2010 and my first brain surgery in 2011. A part of my left-front temporal lobe was removed, but it was so small there was no official diagnosis. As a result of the size, no one knew it was a side effect of the cancer slowly growing in my brain. Although my seizures became more controlled, I continued having them after surgery. I underwent an additional procedure by having a Vagus Nerve Stimulator implanted in 2013. This, too, helped my seizures decrease, but they still occur (although not as often). Read full profile
