Keith Cotton

“We’re hopeful for a breakthrough”

“He had a grand mal seizure at work. So they took him to the hospital and they did the scan and there was a lemon-sized tumor taking up what looked like a quarter of his brain.”

These are the words of Megan Cotton as she reflects on the day her husband, Keith, was diagnosed with brain cancer.

While Keith’s surgeon expertly removed nearly 90 percent of his tumor, Keith lives in fear knowing that one day, his tumor will return.
