About me

Hi, I’m Greg Siofer and this is my blog. It represents my past, present and future and documents the everyday life of a brain cyst survivor.

Back in 2008, doctor’s found a cyst in the middle of my brainstem. But unlike other cyst’s, I wasn’t sent in for surgery to remove the problem. I was told to wait because of the risks associated with that type of brain operation. A few weeks and one scheduled plus two emergency surgeries later, I could no longer walk, eat on my own or even speak.

The cyst was gone but life would never be the same.

My struggle continues every day and I write this blog to share my developments and overall progress with you! I’m 37 years old now and I work out full-time to recover what I lost due to my cyst and stroke. In a sense, I work to turn what has been a horrible situation into something better. Everything in life happens to us for a reason, good or bad. That’s why I suck it up every day, train hard and remember that life goes on.

As a proud father, I work hard to set a better example for my little girl. My family has not been helping throughout this whole process just my loving parents, but at the end of the day things are never easy. Whoever you are, whatever your circumstances, I hope this blog brings you encouragement and motivation. Things might get difficult, but you’re not alone.

Fingers crossed, let my adventure begin.
