In the fall of 1990, Morgan Tyner experienced a moment that would change his life forever. While at work, Morgan, a newly practicing dentist, suffered a seizure. After undergoing many tests over the course of several days, he received a very serious and life threatening diagnosis â€“ anaplastic astrocytoma â€“ an aggressive and fast growing brain tumor.
A grim prognosis added to Morganâ€™s bewildered and devastated outlook. Prior to his diagnosis, Morgan had been an active, young man participating in triathlons, running, playing tennis and pursuing a career as a dentist. After receiving his diagnosis, Morgan launched into perhaps his most challenging endeavor - fighting and eventually beating brain cancer.
After undergoing many surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatment over the last twenty-one years, Morgan shares his experience battling his brain tumor. He aptly explains how, â€śbad things do happen to people."
Today, Morgan has embarked on a new career as the owner of a video production company in Scottsdale, AZ. Morganâ€™s inspiring outlook includes his belief that the mind is very strong at healing. He continues to pursue his follow up care with Dr. Alyx Porter, a neuro-oncologist, at Mayo Clinic in Arizona.
