Inhale courage, exhale fear.

With a next-to-nonexistent medical file, Kelly Fosso Rodenberg thought she must have a pinched nerve when her left hand started losing strength and agility. However, the neurologist examining her suspected there was “something going on upstairs,” and brain scans revealed the existence of a golf ball-sized, malignant tumor nestled above her right ear. Rather than hosting a bunco party that fateful evening, Kelly and her husband were scrambling to make life-and-death decisions for a disease about which they knew absolutely nothing.

Despite the dire statistics associated with her Glioblastoma—Grade 4 diagnosis, Kelly chooses to focus on hope, humor, and happiness. Sure, life with a fast-growing, terminal brain tumor can be tough, but this farm girl is even tougher. Having experienced both sides of the coin—as caregiver for her husband during his battle with a rare medical condition, and now as caregivee in her own hot mess express—Kelly is all about sharing her experiences in hopes of helping and encouraging others.

There’s Something Going On Upstairs is an uplifting story of faith and perseverance, richly informative and inspiring for anyone dealing with a personal crisis. Can the diagnosis of a cancerous brain tumor actually be a gift? Let Kelly count the ways.
