The subsequent urgent brain surgery, epic recovery process and ongoing therapies have had nothing short of miraculous results. Jeannie’s ordeal and the way Jim and her family dealt with it has become the subject of a large portion of the material in “Nobel Ape” and is the subject of Jeannie’s current book, When Life Gives You Pears to be released October 1st.

When Jeannie Noth Gaffigan experienced gradual hearing loss in her left ear, she was sent for a routine MRI. Noth Gaffigan, who, with her husband, is the co-writer of “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” and the mother of their five children, was stunned when the results of her scan revealed a large left-sided tumor in the posterior fossa — a small space located near the brainstem.
