Humans of SD- Zaye Salgado


“My brother got diagnosed with a disease called neurofibromatosis or NF2 for short . He has 8 benign tumors meaning not cancerous. He had 4 on his spine affecting his spinal cord and he had two surgeries to remove two of them. He also has 6 brain tumors, one wrapped in the brain stem and another behind his left eye which affected his eyesight in his left eye. He is blind in that eye, he gets monthly MRIs to make sure none of them have any effect on him. I’m grateful for him and I’m super proud of his strength and willpower.” – Senior, Zaye Salgado
