Stories of Inspiration: Doing Better & Giving Back

Terrell was diagnosed at age 16 with a central neurocytoma.  He is a five-year-survivor. 

In 2006, Terrell underwent a seven-hour surgery to remove a mass the size of an orange.  He is truly a miracle!  Thanks to God and Dr. Reisner (who in our opinion is the best neurosurgeon in the world), and the dedicated staff at Scottish Rite, doctors and nurses came to see the young man who survived having a mass that size removed.

Terrell has undergone five major surgeries and radiation therapy since his diagnosis and is doing great.  He finished high school last year and is now working for Goodwill.  He will also be attending school in the fall to study Business, and has aspirations of helping raise money to give back to the organizations that were there for him in his time of need.  He is a true delight to everyone he meets, and an inspiration to his number one fan – His mom!
