Cindy Owens

Survivor 

Cindy is an oligodendroglioma brain tumor survivor. She was diagnosed in Jan of 2000. During treatments Cindy attended Ozarks Technical Community College  school for surgical technology. In May of 2001 she graduated with a certificate in Surgical Technology. Cindy has worked for Cox Health ever since.

Cindy enjoys helping patients and feels like she can connect with them on another level having been a patient multiple times herself. She has promoted brain tumor awareness through Facebook, newspapers, and television. She was over joyed when she heard about Grey Matters, for many years she had wanted something like this in her community. She contacted Michael and immediately got involved.

Cindy married her husband Casey in 2008, just four months before her second craniotomy,  Casey has been an excellent caretaker. Together they are the guardian of sassy English Bulldog named Tyson, who runs the house.
