About

I am a 17 year brain tumor survivor. I’ve done all standard treatment protocolss two caniototomies 50 doses of Radiation. Years of the oral chemo Temodar Six months of three chemos together called PCV. an I lhis happened quickly in July 2018. I hope to still train jiu-jitsu. And for this match I customized my game quickly into a right side only game. Here I am at TapCancerOut Orlando 2018. This was my first and last tournament. The trial ended in June and now I have to do my second treatment of radiation treatment or become fully paralyzed. My treatment will be throughout July 2019.  I hope to be able to train bjj again but surviving cancer now is now my main priority.

 

Mu radiation treatment will cost over 100K an even with medicare and VA disability I will need to pay 20%. Brain cancer is relentless and the most expensive.
