Welcome to My Personal Page
On the 9th of November 2011, I had my first Grand-mal seizure. I was on vacation with my wife and son visiting her mother in Labrador. I was rushed to the hospital where I had a CT. The doctors found what they described as a "growth" on my brain.
On the 27th of March 2012, I went in for my first surgery. I was diagnosed with a grade 1 glioma. After fighting with daily seizures for most of the year, I was sent to the Montreal Neurological. After a week on the epilepsy ward, I was told that I would be returning for a second surgery.
I had my second surgery in January 2013. After another long surgery, I was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma. Stage III Brain cancer.
After going through radiation and Chemotherapy, I have been stable since January 2014. I still have a small amount of tumour, but it is stable.
I have been on many medications to battle my sezuries, but the best one has been my Medicinal Canabis. Since I stared on it, I have not had a single seizure. *knock on wood*
On the 26th of October 2015, my wife and I welcomed our 2nd son into this world. I was told that I may never have kids again, yet here he is. Our little miracle baby.
I’m part of the movement to end brain tumours and I hope you’ll join me in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.
Every day 27 Canadians learn they have a brain tumour. By signing up for a 2016 Brain Tumour Walk, I’m making a commitment to end brain tumours and to help provide the essential information and support that every person diagnosed deserves.
All money raised through Brain Tumour Walks strengthen the national movement to end this life-changing disease and bring hope to individuals and families across the country:
Hope for progress in discovering the cause of brain tumours.
Hope for better treatments for every child and adult diagnosed.
And most of all, the hope for a cure.
Thank you for supporting me, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.
