Five kids. Four Grammy nominations. One pear-sized brain tumor. When a life-threatening diagnosis turned comedy writer/director Jeannie Gaffigan’s life upside-down, she and her husband, comedian Jim Gaffigan, turned to faith, family, and of course—humor. Jeannie's new memoir is “When Life Gives You Pears" http://bit.ly/2HqD5KU. Joshua Bederson, MD, Chair for the Department of Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Health System, performed the surgery that saved Jeannie's life http://bit.ly/2MFEX6E.
