Our dad has always enjoyed a good play on words, so it's appropriate that in his wide circle of friends, family, and colleagues he himself has gone by many names. Lee, Leo, Dad, Grandpa, Coach, Bossman, Mr. W (for wonderful, of course!), Dr. Bob, Roadrunner, and others I'm sure. But perhaps the most fitting nickname for dad is the one his personal trainer gave him five or more years ago: TMTMTL. That's right: Leo, the Myth the Man the Legend.
As you have all seen, our dad is approaching his stunning diagnosis of malignant brain cancer with the same indomitable spirit he has applied to every other facet of his life. He's not only undaunted, he's positively energized. Growing up, I rolled my eyes every time he reminded me that "Crisis = Danger + Opportunity" or that "Happiness is an Attitude." And, yet, time and time again, he has embodied these beliefs, always defying expectations and odds with his vision and successes. Indefatiguable, he's at it again, this time squaring off against brain cancer and the unacceptable news that it has no cure.
Dad is passionate about the fight against brain tumors and cancer, so we're taking action. We need your help in this fight. Neither Dad nor the National Brain Tumor Society will rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join our effort!
