When Trevor was first diagnosed, he was experiencing dizziness, nausea and seizure-like episodes. In November 2016, Trevor’s brain was hemisected to remove the fist-size tumor. Within days, he was released home for rehab, chemotherapy and radiation. In July 2020, Trevor’s team discovered another tumor and started treatment immediately.
Michelle, Trevor’s mother said, “Trevor is THE MAN! He’s a hero because he perseveres in the face of monumental circumstances. Trevor’s body betrays him with chemotherapy and wipes out not just an immune system, but stamina too. He has to do double and triple duty all the time and he does it with a cheerful attitude and a pleasant, upbeat and hopeful anticipation of all things working out for good.”
