Born and raised in the South, Greg grew-up in small-town America. After playing baseball since he could walk, Greg’s ball seasons ended when doctors at Duke Children’s Hospital discovered a large brain tumor growing in his head. What seemed a hopeless and potentially “last days” situation turned out to be a landmark for the rest of his life. Although brain tumors and brain surgery leave both physical and emotional scars, Greg came out with a new take on life and an intense sense of urgency.
