Maytte Bustillos: Still Living with Brain Cancer

Maytte Bustillos

It’s ten years since her brain cancer diagnosis, a time when doctors gave her two years to live. Now, it’s three days before her fourth brain surgery and Maytte Bustillos is not thinking too much about all these numbers. She speaks with us about finding joy amidst the challenges of living with a chronic and terminal illness.

Since we last talked with her, Maytte Bustilos has been raising her daughter, teaching school and dealing with the end of her marriage.  She speaks openly of the challenges and delights of a life of health routines, family ties and spiritual strength.

Produced and hosted by Shelley Berman.
