Never Giving Up...

When I was young I had dreams of being a top athlete and going to the Olympics like my father had done before me… all that changed October 18th 1988 when I was diagnosed and had a surgery to remove a huge brain tumor in my cerebellum!  The Astrocytoma was diagnosed at the last minute and has a result I almost died! The surgery was performed by some of the best surgeons in Europe equipped with a brand new surgery technique.  Although I was fortunate that it was benign, the surgery lasted nine hours and I had a 30% chance of living.

After staying in intensive care in a coma for four days, I had no motor skills left and didn’t know why God had spared me. I stayed in the hospital for 1 month and the long road of recovery had started but not before a grim analysis of doctors saying I would maybe walk in a year, couldn’t swim, maybe one day I would finish high school and having a job or getting a secondary degree would be “impossible”.

Well I surpassed expectations with the help of God, I walked within six months, swam varsity in college, have a master’s degree and am a teacher.  Recently I have published a book of my life in the hope of helping people and motivate them never to give up in the face of adversity.
