He Was Given 24 Hours To Live Until A Few Simple Words Changed His Life Forever.
Kevin Massey lived through something that many of would consider a “deepest darkest fear.” When it comes to our brains, we don’t think too hard about what goes on up there. Our brains keep our organs functioning, our heart beating, and they house our personalities in a way that we cannot explain. So when something goes wrong, we are most afraid because we don’t understand. At just 16 years old in 2010, Kevin Massey woke up one night paralyzed. He couldn’t move any part of his body but he was awake. Something was terribly wrong.
Once doctors had a chance to evaluate what had happened to Kevin, they realized that he had a terminal brain tumor and only had months left to live. A short while later, tragedy struck in the form of a brain hemorrhage, leaving Kevin with mere hours left of his life. This young 16 year old still had so many dreams, but in those moments, his family feared that his dreams would never be realized.
