SPECIAL EVENTS ASSISTANT
I used to play football until I was diagnosed with brain tumors on July 13th, 2011. I have
gone through two brain surgeries, many days of chemo, a stem cell transplant, and 6 weeks of radiation. I have had almost 2 years of clear MRI scans since February, 2013, meaning I beat brain cancer! I want to be a living example to people that miracles happen to everyone. All you need is faith, a fighting spirit, and positivity. It also helps to work out, eat healthy/nutritious foods, and take the right kind of supplements to aid your body.
