I feel the need to start this post with an explanation – this post is about success beyond adversity (in this case Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The post is not about Judaism, Israel, or any hidden agenda. Those of you who read and/or follow my blog, Beyond Adversity, know I share posts from many religious and ethnic perspectives. Every few months, I publicly ask for posts from posts from religious and spiritual experts, ethnic communities, and ideological groups. This post is about touching lives after adversity strikes and sincere gratitude from people who can expect nothing in return except for some facial recognition, a sign of happiness, and if they are lucky, a few words of appreciation.

If you would like me to share a post about your religious, spiritual, or ethnic beliefs, I am happy to do so if the message is in English, deals directly or indirectly with life-threatening medical adversity, and is not about hate or political views.

Scott
Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development. How were all of these achievements possible at a time when Scott was struggling with the hurdles of brain injury? The answers are in this blog.
