Jonathan Garow

Jonathan Garow, a courageous man who recently finished radiation treatment for prostate cancer, faced an unexpected setback when he experienced tremors in his left hand. Initially attributing the tremors to medication, he was later alarmed when his entire arm underwent a violent seizure. With his son Jimmy’s help, he called for an ambulance and was taken to the hospital, where a CT scan and MRI revealed numerous lesions throughout his brain. Despite the grim diagnosis, Jonathan remains hopeful and appreciative of the support he receives from his loved ones and community.

As doctors worked to determine the cause of the brain lesions, a chest scan uncovered a 3-inch lung tumor. Although the discovery may seem daunting, Jonathan’s medical team is optimistic that if the tumor matches certain genetic mutations, it will respond well to treatment. The best-case scenario involves taking pills to shrink the tumor, followed by radiation therapy to clean up any remaining cancerous cells. 

At the heart of Jonathan’s story is the strength and resilience of his family. His son Jimmy, who has faced his own share of adversity, has emerged as Jonathan’s hero. Together with his brother Ezra, the family continues to lean on each other for support, love, and encouragement as they navigate this difficult journey. As Jonathan fights this battle, he is immensely grateful for the care and support he receives from his community and those around him.
