According to this woman, every unfortunate incident has a silver lining – including car crashes.

Aimee Green and her boyfriend had just finished running errands last month when they started driving back to their home in northern California and got in a car accident on the freeway.

Green suffered head trauma from the accident and was taken to the hospital for a CT scan. When the doctors noticed that she had an abnormal mass around her brain, they asked her to undergo an MRI.

The test revealed that Green actually had a finger-sized brain tumor just above her ear.

While the 24-year-old Sacramento State student was shocked by the diagnosis, she says that she is now grateful for the collision that totaled her car.

“February 20th, 2018 will forever be the day that changed my life,” says Green. “Being in the car accident was truly a blessing in a disguise and I couldn’t be more grateful that we caught it early and I can focus on getting back on track to being healthier than ever.”

The determined young woman is set to undergo surgery in the near future to have the tumor removed. In the meantime, you can follow her on social media or donate to the GoFundMe page that her friend created to help pay Green’s medical bills.
