My Story

"I've failed over and over again in my life.  That is why I succeed."

November 1, 1996 is when my life changed.

It was November 1, 1996; my life would change forever.  It was a beautiful afternoon, sunny blue clear skies. The roads were dry with no snow in sight. I remember driving with a good friend, feeling great, however, things would quickly change.  While driving my car, without notice, I got side-swiped, car spinning out of control, crossing all lanes of the road, head-on towards a solid concrete wall. After a impact my car rebounded off the wall and went 9-10 feet in the air.  When the car came to a stop, the driver and the car that hit us pulled in front of us.  I thought the driver was going to stop and come out of the car, when suddenly the car took off. The driver was later caught by the police and it was revealed that the driver had no car insurance.  It was a terrifying ordeal, but fortunately my friend was OK.  For myself, I appeared to be okay but that day was the day my life would change forever and unknowingly for the next year.

 

At that time I was a premiere basketball talent and was looking forward to playing with the Alberta Juvenile Provincial Basketball Team.  One day during practice, I noticed things felt different. Something I had spent thousands of hours, hundreds of days, and many years mastering now didn’t seem so recognizable.  My timing was off, my hands were shaky, and my vision was blurry.  I just didn’t feel right.  After an entire year, my body had quickly deteriorated where each and everyday became a nightmare.  I was eventually referred to a Neurologist and had an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan done on my brain.  After 2 weeks, I was called to come discuss the results with my Neurologist.  It was found that my Cerebellum became herniated due to the force of my car hitting the concrete wall.  I was given two options.  One, was to do nothing, however, within 3-5 years, my body would continue to rapidly deteriorate, my motor skills would be gone and I would eventually become a vegetable.  My second option was to go through brain surgery with a not so favorable chance of survival during surgery.  In other words, I had no great options.  God, my Neurosurgeon and the medical team would have been the only ones to get me through this situation, but I had little hope and made preparations for the worst.

 

Surgery was performed in 1997. After the surgery, I remember waking up and thinking I was dead, but quickly realized I had pulled through.  However, the road ahead would not be a bed of roses, it took months which turned to 3 years for me relearning how to crawl, walk and talk again.  Playing basketball was not even part of the plan for me anymore, I was just fighting and working hard to do basic movements and activities.  I was happy to alive.  Just when I thought I was improving, I began to feel the same symptoms I was feeling after the accident.  Again I went to see my neurologist. Although the first surgery was a success, I was once again faced with the decision regarding my life.  Should I try and go through another surgery, knowing that the risks were even greater this time around, or accept my fate, not go through another brain surgery and hope to cherish the little time I would have left with family and friends.  I was crushed and devastated, but I found the strength and courage to fight once again and that’s what I did.  My second brain surgery was performed in 2000.  After the surgery, I woke up thinking, did I do it again? No way I could have beating the odds again!!  Two times, I miraculously pulled through situations that was simply unthinkable.  So once again, it was time to get back to work.  Over the next 3 years I relearned how to crawl, walk and talk again.  It really hit me hard and I longer took anything for granted.  I found happiness, cherished humility, a reason and purpose to live. To help people to live a better life.  I surrounded myself with positivity and embraced people from all walks of life.  I have become a mentor, a loving father, and a devoted worker who never hesitates to lend a helping hand or share my story.  So here I am today.  Healthy and in good spirits, grounded with gratitude and truly loving life.  My experiences have lead me to believe that smart, hard work, and the desire to fight will only result into success.  I believe in the quality of my character and integrity. I believe my trials have lead me to where I am today.  I believe in people and the possibilities that lie ahead.

 

Real estate is just one of several things I truly enjoy doing,  not because of the lifestyle it provides for me, but because of the positive life-changing possibilities I can help provide for someone else.  This is my testimony, my journey straight from the heart.
