More information about her struggle appeared on Novocure’s website.

Singleton had been in the Navy and worked as an executive administrative assistant in Afghanistan.

She started to feel bad when her mother died and her father was diagnosed with cancer.

Roslyn got a headache and heard the sea crashing.

“At first I thought it was stress,” Roslyn recalls. But the pain did not go away and she began to see dots.

“I lay down to sleep and… you know how you hold a seashell to your ear and you can hear the ocean?” she said. “I could hear the ocean when I lay down.”

She went to another doctor and learned she had brain cancer, which led to several surgeries and treatments, but her cancer went to the stage 4 glioblastoma (GBM).

She also spoke about her faith. “I believe that God is really great and has been really great in my life, and I know He’s in control of everything,” Roslyn said.
