I became ill in 2001 and over 4 years saw 51 specialists that could not diagnose my illness. I was handed a Medline study from Christopher Reeves' Neurologist and was told to find the surgeon that performed that study. It lead me to Pittsburgh & Dr Peter Jannetta, Godfather of Modern Neurosurgery. He saved me from becoming a quadriplegic & worse. I never imagined I would develop multiple Rare Diseases at 31 yrs old, I had to learn to live a new limited life and the only way to start was with knowledge, then with helping others when I was well enough, and I have never stopped. I am a Leader in the Rare Disease Community, a Healthcare Activist, and Lobbyist. I have been fortunate to work with 1000's of Rare Disease Patients, Health and Disease Organizations and Foundations, Healthcare Stakeholders, and learned from them all. Now I try and improve Healthcare one day and project at a time.

After fifteen years in the IT industry, a four-year battle with stage IV melanoma uncovered a new career path: patient advocate. I have had the opportunity to write and speak about the patient experience for late-stage cancer treatments, immunotherapies, and clinical trials. I have facilitated several seminars on melanoma, and was the Melanoma International Foundation's Patient Advocate of the Year in 2013. I am also the creator of the melanoma-centric "Patient #1" blog on www.Philly.com, as well as a regular contributor to their “Diagnosis: Cancer” page. It is written so the layperson, reading during the shock of a cancer diagnosis, can translate medical terminology in tangible terms and be able to ask informed questions. Speaking and other engagements provide an opportunity to reverse the information flow – bringing the concerns, questions, and commentary of patients to industry, regulatory, and trial stakeholders to enact meaningful and mutually beneficial change.

In 2008 I was diagnosed with inoperable stage III NSCLC. That moment began a new journey which continues to this day. My story has reached Advocacy groups, Healthcare professionals, Corporate leadership, Researchers, Government, Professional Health organizations, and Insurers to name a few.

The blueprint for many client presentations is culled from my book, ‘It’s an Extraordinary Life – Don’t Miss It’. Published in 2010, the contents are the result understanding and reflection of the important aspects of life following a life threatening diagnosis. It has since become an Amazon Best Seller.

Prior to becoming a sought after corporate speaker, I was president and CEO of a high-end marketing firm in the Greater Seattle area. Microsoft and their global Partner community our primary customer base.

With my combined business experience along with the cancer diagnosis, I bring an informed, personal, and educated approach and customize presentations to every audience I engage.

I was 30 years old when he was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), a primary brain tumor. Even though I had the support from my family and friends I didn’t know anyone that could relate to the fight I was about to embark on or beaten the same type of cancer. In 2012 I founded a non-profit called Greg’s Mission.

Greg’s Mission provides support, HOPE, education, current resources and awareness to patients suffering from brain tumors especially Glioblastoma Multiforme (a grade IV primary brain tumor) via phone, email, skype and personal visits. I have dedicated my life to making sure that no person diagnosed with a brain tumor has to go through the experience alone and that no family or caregiver goes without support.

Since founding GM I have helped over 2800 patients, families and caregivers navigate their brain tumor journey. Additionally, I volunteer at MD Anderson, Cleveland Clinic and The Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation as a patient mentor and advocate.
