"We all hear about cancer and brain tumors, and in denial we all say: 'oh that could never happen to me'. I know that, because I said that, and then in the prime of my life and perfect health it did happen." -Gus-
I had a seizure and was taken by ambulance to a hospital and the doctor told me a CT scan revealed a large brain [tumor] mass. I had the choice to be fearful, or fearless. I would like to say I "accepted the challenge" because i was fearless, but i was scared and that was my mask. It wasn?t until i started meeting other brain tumor survivors and patients till I really saw what fearlessness looks like.
for us patients and survivors, we have a very scary road ahead of us (i am one of the very fortunate ones). but when we stand arm to arm, shoulder to shoulder together, and with the support of friends and family behind us, that?s where the true strength and courage comes from. And that is what it feels like to be in the race for hope
My name is Gus, can you accept the challenge?
