Can you imagine dealing with the Covid pandemic for nearly two years and while this is going on you find out you have Cancer... That's exactly what Grant Vanderwagen has experienced. After major surgery in late 2020, Grant has just completed his first round of Radiotherapy. He had to do 24 sessions of radiotherapy to target the tumor in his ear canal.
Now that the Radiotherapy is done, Grant will be starting Nuclear Treatment early in September 2021. Nuclear Treatment is one of the newest forms of cancer treatment that is very targeted. The positive side of Nuclear Treatment is that the side effects are not near as heavy as radiation or chemo. However, Nuclear Treatment is a very long process and could go on for a year, if not longer. It all depends on the progression of the cancer, of which is monitored very closely by Grant's doctors.
While all of this is going on for Grant he still manages to have time to think of ways to not only support himself, but support those who are battling with cancer too.
Grant recently had an interview with Bjorn Salsone from EBizRadio.com where he explains what he has install for Mind Over Matter.
