Stephanie Was Told She Had A Brain Tumor
Late in 2019, Stephanie Bissonnette was sadly told she had a brain tumor. The actress was told she had medulloblastoma. After this was found out, Stephanie had to get a lot of radiation treatments to get rid of the dangerous tumor for good.
In an interview in 2022, Stephanie talked openly about how she was fighting this impossible opponent. The dancer with many talents said that during a performance, she suddenly felt an unbearable twinge, which led to the diagnosis.
During the interview, Stepahine said
|“The twinge literally passed in two seconds. It was very brief, and I was able to finish the show that day. Then I called out of the show that night. I don’t think we would have found the tumor if I worked a normal nine-to-five job. Because I move so much and I do crazy things for a living. I have been doing it since I was five”.|
Stephanie was a very brave girl who fought hard from the age of five when life got in her way. When she felt pain out of the blue, she was sure that she was about to come up with something. But she never in her wildest dreams thought it would be a tumor. The doctors said that they couldn’t think of any reason why a young, healthy woman of twenty-eight would have this kind of tumor.
