Looking forward to being on the Brain Tumor Talk World Wide Radio Show at the end of April:


On October 14th, 2015 I had the opportunity to go on the “Michael Dukes Show,” I was able to share my story and provide some stroke awareness to thousands of listeners. I met Michael on Periscope about a month ago and have been following his radio show. Please visit to learn more. The Periscope video of my interview can be seen below:
