Not many people would call a car accident a blessing in disguise, but a woman from Sacramento, California said that her unfortunate accident was a blessing.
Twenty-four-year-old Aimee Green and her boyfriend, Gianni Westlake, were driving on a Sacramento Highway on Feb.20, when the car sped out of control and crashed; leaving her unconscious and the car wrecked.
Green suffered head trauma from the accident and was taken to a hospital for a CT scan.
“We had no broken bones and no severe injuries. We both came out of it okay,” Green told People.
“But during the routine CT scan, they found abnormalities in my brain … later that night, around midnight, they told me, ‘I’m sorry, you have a brain tumor.’ ”
The test revealed that Green actually had a finger-sized brain tumor just above her ear.
While the 24-year-old Sacramento State student was shocked by the diagnosis, she said that she is now grateful for the collision that totaled her car; saying that February 20th, 2018 will forever be the day that changed her life.
“Being in the car accident was truly a blessing in a disguise and I couldn’t be more grateful that we caught it early and I can focus on getting back on track to being healthier than ever,” she added.
Green is determined to undergo surgery in the near future to have the tumor removed.
