Who am I? And My Story So Far....
MY Life before: I thought I was bullet proof enjoyed racing and training hard riding an averaging 200+km a week and 25km Running a week.

Carried a Drain Bag for two weeks after lymph node removal.
Home after three days in Hospital These beautiful girls and my wife are my motivation and fight to keep living they keep me going everyday.
Moved on with Life and thought all is ok.... Entered Melbourne Marathon to race the 10km My aim was to run sub 38min.
OCTOBER 2012 6 months since being told I had Stage 3a Melanoma-cancer.
October 2012 Scan Time...... Sc anxiety.
Scan Results showed four Brain Tumours
Within 6 Months i went from stage 3A to Stage 4C Cancer.
My home for the next month one of the hardest parts of all this was missing my family.
Battle Scars Bleed on the brain
Set Back with a return to hospital...Resilience tested again.
The ‘Game’ of Life and setting goals.....

The other big Goal was to see our eldest child And second eldest go to school and kinder for the first time.
