In her memoir 8 : Rediscovering Life After a Brain Tumor, Nathalie Jacob tells the incredible and inspiring story of rediscovering life and purpose after doctors discovered a golf ball sized tumor in her brain. Once a high-level marketing executive who spent 10 years working for Fortune 500 companies, Nathalie, in the aftermath of her subsequent operation, had to relearn how to do the simplest of tasks and draw on her unwavering resilience to adjust to the new normal and redefine who she was and what she could accomplish.
Join us as we welcome Nathalie to the library for a candid and powerful talk about her journey of resilience and triumph over adversity. After Nathalie’s talk, we will move into a panel discussion on brain tumor symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment and rehabilitation options, moderated by Christopher Cusano, Executive Director of the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance (CTBTA) and featuring:
