NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A new surgeon at University of Arizona Medical Center and the discovery of a massive brain tumor changed the life of a young mother, who'd recently given birth to twins.
Jessica Valenzuela suffered from severe headaches for more than two years. Her doctor's told her they were migraines. But after her twins were born last April the pain became unbearable and the headaches never went away.
On June 30th, Jessica couldn't take the pain any longer and had her husband Alex take her to the emergency room at UAMC.
Jessica said she expected to be told she was suffering from migraines or tension headaches, she was not prepared for what happened next.
