Jared Graves Diagnosed with Brain Cancer
Very tough news from Jared Graves today. We'll let you hear it in his words below, but suffice to say he's in for the battle of his life. If anyone can beat this it's Jared and we'll all be in his corner.
Some news of the not so awesome variety. To cut a long story short, since getting back home from Whistler I suffered a couple of seizures, and woke up from one last Thursday morning to paramedics taking me off to hospital, where tests and scans were done to discover I have a tumor growing in my brain. So for now more scans and doctors appointments and scans over the next week leading to surgery within the next approximately 10 days. The plan at the moment is to then start chemotherapy. Not sure what else to say for now, it’s all hit so fast....needless to say I won’t be at the last 2 EWS rounds this year as this new battle begins.
This morning has served a number of reminders that life is delicate and can change in an instant. One of those reminders was that this champ, @jaredgravesmtb has been suffering from seizures and just learned he has a brain tumor. In a world filled with hard working, dedicated individuals, Gravey quickly rises to the top of the list for me. I’ve never met someone who works harder and is more dedicated to their goals than Jared. It’s these thoughts that provide some comfort, knowing that he will fight this with everything he has. Stay strong mate. You’ve got this. 💪🏼 . #fuckcancer #nokeepingitlighttoday #ardorphoto
Stay strong Jared!
