Show Notes

Before he was a cancer survivor, Terry Tucker had a life filled with exciting challenges and goals achieved. An NCAA Division I college basketball player, a Citadel cadet, a marketing executive, a hospital administrator, and a SWAT Team Hostage Negotiator, that all changed when he found the callus on his foot was actually cancer. At least for a while.

Now as Terry fights for his life, he uses the lessons learned to motivate others through his blog, book, and inspiring talks.
