Trent’s Story


In June 2009 I had a seizure and was diagnosed with an astrocytoma. I was initially on a “watch and wait” approach and I was not able to drive for nine months. Fortunately my wife and I own a business together and began riding to work together, a terrific experience that we have kept until today. We have four kids, two already off to college, but through a long 2010 that included surgery, radiation, and chemo we became a stronger family and our business became stronger. We believe God has brought us through this to be an encouragement to others. I pray daily that God will show me people I can positively impact and as long as I have the strength I plan to do so.

I had some big goals in life, and I continue to chase many of them; however, I have changed my perspective and I focus much of my time and energy on things with eternal value – PEOPLE. While there may not be a cure today, I long to leave a legacy of hope for those impacted by brain tumors today and in the future.
