Craniversary Banner



For those of you who don’t know Craniversary is a one year anniversary for brain surgery. On January 20th 2016 it was my husbands 1 year Craniversary. On November 2014 he was diagnosed with a prolactin secreting pituitary tumor and was later scheduled with brain surgery on January 20th, 2015 to get it removed. It was a very difficult time in my life to see him go through such a scary surgery, and to see him in so much pain. Luckily the neurosurgeons were able to remove Pat (we named his tumor) without any problems and he is now living a healthy life.



Being his 1 year anniversary I decided to go all out. I love to celebrate and I decided that it would be fun to make it a fun celebration. While he was at work I made him a “Happy Craniversary” Banner (I have some links below to make your own), and I made him a jello  Brain. Later that evening we met our families for dinner at Red Lobster and celebrated his life.


I am so beyond thankful for my husband and for modern medicine. He is a trooper and my hero.

Here are the downloads for the banner.
