Rocky…Being Part of Something Bigger
My name is Rocky Stone I’m 40 years old and I’ve had brain tumor and skin cancer since 19 months old. My brain tumor was caused due to my dad’s exposure to agent orange and I ended up with skin cancer due to the amount of radiation I was given to stunt the growth of the brain tumor.
Though my brain tumor was more so “given to me,” it still doesn’t change the fact I am here to share my story and possibly help others.
I’m the longest known survivor of a magellan blastoma brain tumor and I’ve had 92 skin cancer surgeries to date. My parents were originally told that I would live less than a year and would be in a vegetative state, completely bedridden.
The reason why I personally get involved with We’re Moving Forward! is because I need to be a part of something bigger than myself and try to help others with what I’ve been through – because that’s what I’ve done my entire life.
