She has shown us how strong of a woman she has been over the last few months. Kelly Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, is slowly returning to her normal life after a life-changing brain tumor diagnosis.
In the video above, you see Kelly opening up for the first time about the diagnosis, surgery and her entire recovery with her family by her side.
"I remember Matthew gets a phone call and I'm sitting there with all three of our girls, just hanging out on the floor. Matthew gets a phone call and I can kinda tell his demeanor a little bit. The phone call probably lasts 5 minutes, and he gets off, and I was like "Who's that" and he's like "Asheesh". I said "Oh okay, what's going on?"
"And he goes "Well, I don't want you to worry, they said they found something in your MRI. We probably just need to go get it checked. I kinda brushed it off. I didn't think twice about it. Until they sent us the doctor we were going to and it was a neurosurgeon at UCLA. That's when I was like, okay, this is interesting."
"We sat down, she pulled out my MRI, and she was like "Okay, well here's your brain tumor."
