"It's not what happens, it's how you react that matters."
-Mark Twain

I'm an 11 year brain tumor survivor with severe physical impairments.  The last decade has been a crazy ride! I have gone from doctor of physical therapy to brain tumor patient with physical disabilities; brain tumor survivor to brain tumor advocate; and advocate to nonprofit professional!  I'm not done yet... ;P

I'm planning on taking 3 "post-oncology treatment thrivers" that embody the SPIRIT of mAss Kickers Foundation to present the concept of "post treatment thrivership" in Cape Town, South Africa at health care education schools, charity organizations, and survivor groups Nov 9 -16.  We believe that we need to approach these diseases with more intelligence, heart, and humor.    

Please consider a donation to support our 2016 efforts to educate people in South Africa about a proactive life after a tumor/cancer diagnosis...  THERE IS A STIGMA OF SHAME/GUILT/EMBARRASMENT ASSOCIATED WITH A TUMOR/CANCER DIAGNOSIS.  HELP US SHOW THE WORLD THAT SURVIVORS CAN PICK OURSELVES UP AND THRIVE AFTER A TUMOR/CANCER DIAGNOSIS!

The 4 survivors participating in this tumor/cancer "thrivership" mission are very excited to travel to an exciting new place, but we need YOUR HELP TO FUND THIS!  
Please help me reach my fundraising goal!   We will definitely send you a video shout out from Cape Town!

Help us teach the WORLD  how to "Kick mAss!"  Pass this on!
