EDWARDSBURG, Mich. -- Jennifer Farrell has battled a brain tumor since she was 16. After teaching for 19 years in Mishawaka, the side effects of treatments made it difficult to continue her career. Now she hopes her book can help children in a different way.
Farrell is a South Bend who has undergone 6 brain surgeries to get rid of a brain tumor.
She compiled her knowledge and experiences of MRI's and other treatments to create a story geared toward children.
Farrell hopes to share her book with doctor's offices and hospitals across Michiana and potentially the country and then add a few more stories to the collection expanding into other health-related experiences she's had.
ABC57's morning team sat down with Farrell to hear her story and how her book is helping kids be brave.
