Esther’s Acoustic Neuroma


Esther suffered from hearing loss in her left ear and paralysis of the left side of her face. An MRI found the Acoustic Neuroma and doctors urged her to have surgery but she wanted to explore more options. She tried acupuncture of several months. After some time, she contacted UCSF and combined with their efforts and those of the insurance company, she was treated with the CyberKnife at Stanford University Medical Center. She had tremendous anxiety that she would never smile again but she is very willing to demonstrate that’s not the case. She was inspired by the thought that when bad things happen, it’s an opportunity to bring out the best in you.
