Celebrating Strength, October 9, 2012

For small business owner and pilot Tom, his brain tumour journey began with periodic seizures that caused blackouts, resulting in a frightening car accident. Though the experience was terrifying, the accident led Tom and his loved ones to the answers they were desperately looking for: Tom was diagnosed with a non-malignant meningioma. Surgery removed the kiwi-sized brain tumour and with no lasting effects from the disease, Tom says he is one of the lucky ones. Hear Tom tell his story in this five-and-a-half minute video.
