Breaking the hurdles of life- Gregsiofer.com
Gregsiofer.com is an inspirational site that chronicles the life of Greg Siofer, a brain tumor survivor, who has made it through life with his strong will and determination.
Location (26th July 2013)- 33-year old Greg Siofer led a normal happy life when one day a tumor decided to ruin it all. In 2008 he was diagnosed with an unusual brain tumor that could not be removed with surgery lest his life be put to risk. But unable to bear the pain he underwent two emergency surgeries that put a stop to his ability to walk, eat or even speak. Although the tumor was gone from the brain, it left a hole in his life. Father of a beautiful girl baby, Greg did not have the liberty to hold her or play with her. But soon he realized that he could either let his disability kill him or strengthen him. He told himself that ‘he could and he will’ and started working out and training to get over the disability caused by tumor and stroke.
His blog is an inspiration to all and documents his life from 2008. In spite of his pain and troubles, Greg shares with the world his faith and motivates whoever is about to give up on life. The problems we face in life may be smaller or bigger than what Greg has gone through. But it affects us all the same way, paralyzing us physically, emotionally or mentally. But he encourages us to stay positive and keep trying. Greg never allowed his disability make him feel like a failure. In his opinion, people fail only when they stop trying.
