A person who has lived eight years longer than his medical prognosis has revealed how he was in a position to publish a book despite having a surgical procedure to take away the part of the brain that permits reading.
Martino Sclavi, 46, from London was first diagnosed with Glioblastoma grade IV in 2011, has lived eight years beyond his prognosis.
The father-of-one was 38-years-old when he started to experience signs such as headaches that he thought have been stress-related, while engaged on a movie project with friend Russell Brand in Los Angeles.
He was given an emergency operation after being hurried to the hospital before receiving further therapy by medical experts in Rome.’ The analysis changed every little thing for me. Brain cancer means each expectation my wife and I had of our life fully changed,’ he informed FEMAIL.
Martino who has produced a sequence of movies and documentaries including Brand: A Second Coming, informed of his battle to live a full life and defy the chances despite having a brain tumor.
He mentioned: ‘I used to be in Los Angeles on January 2011. It was lovely. The air was just a little cold in the evening; otherwise, always good. I began to get some headaches, just randomly during the day.
‘I simply assumed that I used to be a bit stressed by the screenplay that needed to be completed. Then the headaches grew to become stronger and stronger.’
