The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything.  It’s your mind you have to convince.  Vince Lombardi

In the span of seven years, Tom Hulsey has faced three life-threatening diseases. With each diagnosis, he had to hold on to his winning mindset, to decide to live and subsequently inspire others no matter what their life challenges.  These challenges have given Tom a wonderful perspective on life.  He never intended to take this journey, but through his illnesses, he found a sense of higher meaning in his plight by switching from nursing his own personal sense of tragedy(s) to encouraging empathy for others. During this time he has transformed himself into a men’s health champion, advocating for research funding, creating awareness, educating, and providing hope and inspiration to those dealing with challenges in their lives.
