Kristen Daniell

Kristen Daniell began to suffer from migraine headaches that became progressively worse. When Kristen experienced paralysis on her right side, a series of tests revealed a tumor on the top, left side of her brain. Removal of Kristen’s brain tumor required extreme caution because it was large and prone to bleeding. Under the care of Dr. David Baskin and his team of highly skilled neurosurgeons at the Kenneth R. Peak Center for Brain and Pituitary Tumor Treatment and Research, the latest virtual-reality system provided safe guidance through Kristen’s brain. Successful removal of the tumor was achieved through the use of precision micro-tools and the application of ultrasonography.

Kristen has since returned to her everyday routine as a makeup artist. Hear Kristen tell her inspiring story of survival.
