True or true?
Still have an email saved from 2010 post brian surgery that I wrote to @lancearmstrong and will share what that email container in person one day. I just know it!
Until then, I’ll just continue to share my gratitude and perspective I’ve gained from Lance over the years.
When I was originally diagnosed with the first brain tumor in 2010, I was on top of the world living out my dream as a pro BMX athlete beyond what I ever fathomed being possible.
When the diagnosis hit, I was a fresh 21 year old sitting in the doctors office ALONE waiting to get a report from a concussion I had received a few days prior. Never did I imagine I would be diagnosed with a massive brain tumor on accident.
I’m thankful it all happened and has worked out the way it has and Lance is one of many I have to thank for the mindset that was instilled in me on top of what my family, BMX, and my own journey instilled in me at a young age.
After a 6-hr surgery, 75 staples, and 16 stitches later, I was back riding in 5 weeks!
The fact that I’m still alive and able to love my life better than before is why I work so hard and share all I share.
It’s called GRATITUDE and PERSPECTIVE.
