Karen DeBonis began writing a memoir 20 years ago, after her 11-year-old son was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Then she put the writing aside, as living in the present with a brain-injured child left no time or energy to write about the past. Now that her son is grown and well, Karen intends to finish what she started. She also writes essays on personal growth, self-acceptance, and life lessons, all of them themes in her memoir.
