At a young age, I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that affected my left hand and left leg muscles to be stiff. I underwent surgery in order to have the benign brain tumor fully removed. As brave and strong as I was at a very young age I got through the surgery with a smile on my face before and after surgery. I was always very active in sports which was always my number one motivation to keep going in life; especially hockey. I always did what the doctors and physical therapists told me to in order to get better which was to stay active and exercise. This has made me a stronger person each and every day. My suffering until this day keeps me going and motivated in life. It is hard, but I will never give up on my faith in God plans for me.
