About Terry Tucker

In many ways, he believes he is just like any of the billions of people existing on this planet.

He has reinvented himself frequently over his professional career. After he graduated from The Citadel, he was employed in the Marketing Department at the corporate headquarters of Wendy’s International, in Dublin, Ohio. From there he switched to hospital administration for Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. After getting married, he became the Customer Service Manager for an academic publishing company in Santa Barbara, California. Subsequently, he was a police officer in Cincinnati, Ohio. Following a family move to Texas, he started his own consulting business and coached high school basketball in Houston. Each time he took on a new position, he had to develop new skills and faced different challenges. There was always a significant learning curve with each new job.

But his greatest challenge began in early 2012 when he was diagnosed with a rare form of melanoma that presented on the bottom of his foot. By the time the cancer was detected, it had metastasized to a lymph node in his groin. He was treated at the world-renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center. He had two surgeries to remove the cancer, and after he was healed, he was put on a weekly injection of Interferon to help keep the disease from returning.

The Interferon gave me severe flu-like symptoms for two – three days every week after each injection. He lost fifty pounds during his therapy, was constantly nauseous, fatigued and chilled, his ability to taste food significantly diminished, and his body continually ached. This misery went on for over 1,660 days!

One thing he learned during all his pain and suffering is that you have two choices. You can either succumb to the debilitating discomfort and misery, or you can learn to embrace it and use it to make you a stronger and better human being. He chose the latter.
