“Surgeries never scared me,” she says. “I was used to it. When you’re 7 years old, you don’t realize what’s going on.”

Kacey had a juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma, a low-grade tumor that is not as aggressive as other brain cancers, but still a cancer that can kill and disable. Kacey fought two relapses and underwent radiation and chemo. She is now disease-free.

It started with ringing in her ears that got progressively worse.  Then, Cheryl Cado started losing her balance. Her doctor ordered an MRI which showed a brain tumor.

Frightened, Cheryl got an appointment with neurosurgeon Frank Culicchia M.D. of Culicchia Neurological Clinic,  who immediately put her at ease.  Cheryl was suffering from a meningioma, a benign tumor of the covering of the brain.

Dr. Culicchia scheduled Cheryl for surgery to remove the tumor. The procedure was successful and Cheryl was back home within days.

When Sharon Beckwith began feeling numbness and tingling in her hand, her doctor ordered an MRI to investigate this neuropathy. It revealed a benign tumor on her pituitary gland that was causing Cushing’s disease, a serious disorder of the endocrine system.

In an extremely complex and delicate surgery, Neurosurgeon Frank Culicchia, MD removed the tumor by accessing the brain through a sall incision in the upper lip.

Ten months after the surgery, Sharon Beckwith says she’s gotten her life back and is grateful that she was able to undergo the complicated neurosurgery right here in New Orleans.
