The journey began in October 1997 . A lemon size tumor was detected in my brain on a Cat Scan at the hospital after I had been brought in because I had passed out and fallen of a horse. After the SX, the diagnosis came back on the tumor Stage IV , and my prognosis was a year of survival.. Guess they were wrong. Here I am, and it will be my 19th anniversary in Oct this year (2016). I have had two birthdays a year since 1998. This year I turned 67in May and 19 is coming up in Oct. Statistics are just that, statistics and nothing more.
