Nathan Age: 22 AT/RT Brain Tumor Recovering Nathan is very proud of his scars from two brain surgeries to remove tumors. They build character and besides "chicks dig scars". When he was receiving his chemo, he mentioned how he had initially lost over sixty pounds off of a very athletic body. In the past few months, the chemo wasn't bothering him as much and he was able to gain back almost twenty-five pounds. Since he was feeling better he started working out and was stoked to show off his guns. "Now I'm getting strong enough to kick cancer's ass". His mom, who was sitting nearby, looked up and smiled with pride. Seven months after this photo was taken, Nathan has responded very favorably to his treatment. He has gained an additional 50 lbs. of muscle, is working out daily and his hair is growing back. He is taking college classes online and has applied for a few jobs. Nathan is beating the odds and is a true success story.
