For years, 3News’ Senior Health Correspondent Monica Robins has dedicated her life to reporting on the journeys of those battling rare and life-threatening injuries.
On Monday, during 3News' What Matters Most, Robins revealed that she has begun a health journey of her own.
For years, she had been dealing with a nagging problem in her left eye, first thought to be allergies, then possibly an autoimmune disorder.
But an MRI revealed something far more serious: a tumor, pressing against her eye and brain's left hemisphere.
