The Initial Brain Tumor

  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths...Proverbs 3: 5-6.... 

A massive brain tumor reaffirmed this Christian's faith in God and our savior Jesus Christ.

Find out how it all unfolded

This Web site was launched to share my story of triumph after being diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a baseball on April 27, 2007. There are many points in this experience when I know with certainty that God was ordering my steps, whispering in my ear and leading me on a road to revelation. This was not my doing, but something that had been predetermined before the creation of the world.

Gerald singing in the church choirAs the events surrounding my medical crisis unfolded over those 12 days in April and May 2007, I realized this was the reason I was put here, for this exact time and moment. My mission was to show everyone what a true believer and Christian would say, do and feel when faced with possible death.

Instead of fear, I felt peace Ė- perfect peace. I had confidence in my doctors at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas and knew that I was in the best possible place I could be for neurosurgery in that region of the country. Whatever happened was in Godís hands. Why would I worry about that? He strategically surrounded me with Christian angels who were watching over my care. I hope my story both inspires and informs. God Bless!
