Brad’s Story

“I wish I would have sought out other resources, other avenues, other people to talk to. If I hadn’t found the right place, the correct oncologist, I don’t know where I’d be today. Ask questions. Question everything.”

“When I found the first couple of patients through the internet, the feeling is super exciting because you’ve never talked to anybody and they’ve never talked to anybody with a tumor either, and you have this immediate bond that you want to share.”
