You have brain cancer. Those are devastating words for anyone to hear. A man named Morgan Tyner heard those words and was told he had only months to live. But 20 years later he's still here. This is his inspirational story of survival.
It happened little by little. First he would forget things, then he'd lose track of what he was doing. Lewy body dementia took over the life of the man you're about to meet. The disease is the second most common form of dementia, Alzheimer's being the first. There is no cure, but experts at Mayo Clinic are researching Lewy body disease in hopes of improving the lives of people who struggle with it.

A diagnosis of breast cancer can be very difficult. Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and facing such a serious illness may make some women feel like they've lost control of their lives.

She made some lifestyle changes that not only made her lose weight and feel better, but they also reduced her risk of the cancer coming back.
