Four years after brain surgery, 9-year-old Crestview girl is thriving

| Wendy Victora Rudman

One month before Olivia Nesseth turned 5, doctors discovered a tumor in the little Crestview girl’s left frontal lobe.

The discovery was made after her older brother dropped her and she hit her head. That wasn’t the cause of her tumor – it was the reason it was discovered before it burst in her brain, killing her.

After 5-year-old Olivia Nesseth had her first brain surgery, she woke up having lost control of the right side of her face, along with the ability to speak without stuttering, walk or eat. Contributed photo
