Enduro World Series (EWS) racer and Specialized athlete Jared Graves announced on Instagram this morning that he was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.
After returning home to Australia from the Whistler round of the EWS he had a few seizures.
After one of his seizures, he woke up in an ambulance. The hospital ran some tests on Graves and discovered a growing brain tumor.
Some news of the not so awesome variety. To cut a long story short, since getting back home from Whistler I suffered a couple of seizures, and woke up from one last Thursday morning to paramedics taking me off to hospital, where tests and scans were done to discover I have a tumor growing in my brain. So for now more scans and doctors appointments and scans over the next week leading to surgery within the next approximately 10 days. The plan at the moment is to then start chemotherapy. Not sure what else to say for now, it’s all hit so fast….needless to say I won’t be at the last 2 EWS rounds this year as this new battle begins.
Graves will have surgery in the next ten days, he says, and then he would start chemotherapy.
“Not sure what else to say for now, it’s all hit so fast….needless to say I won’t be at the last 2 EWS rounds this year as this new battle begins,” said Graves on Instagram.
Horrible news. Life is so fickle, I hope Jared makes a speedy recovery and gets his life back to where it was.
Hope he gets healthy and has a long life ahead of him!
Jarded….best wishes for a full and speedy recovery. Stay strong – we’re all pulling for you!!
Wish you well and a quick recovery. You need to do some serious homework on your options. What the doctors first propose may not be your best option. Other doctors may have better options.
