Meet DWBHshirts new warrior, MAX LARIOS

(Being added this weekend)
Married Father 63 years young

My name is Max Larios and I was a successful Business Owner and main bread
winner in my household for 27 years, but in 2008, I suffered a stroke and
was diagnosed with Hypertension and Type 2 Diabetes.  As a result of the
stroke, I was left with a partial disability on the left arm and leg.  I was
no longer able to work and being a Business Owner, I had no medical
insurance and found myself in a financial hardship.

On May 31, 2011, I believed I was suffering from another stroke, and was
taken to the ER.  After an extensive CT scan and MRI, I learned that it
wasn’t a stroke, but 3 brain tumors.

On June 4, 2011, I had a craniotomy to remove and biopsy two of the three
tumors. The third tumor was too large, deep, and dangerous to remove. After
the biopsy results I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer (Glioblastoma) on June
7, 2011.

After battling Diabetes for several years, I am now faced with the challenge
of finding additional strength to overcome this new illness. With hopes of
shrinking the third tumor I will receive heavy treatment .

Our financial overhead increased with new medications and frequent doctor
visits.  We have seen some tough times. With my disability, I require 24
hour assistance and care, leaving my wife unable to work, in order to assist
me. It has been a bit of a challenge with our income decreasing so

I am 63 years young, yet this illness seems to have aged me rapidly.  I live
in Corona, California and will be commuting to St. Joseph’s Hospital in
Orange, California to begin my treatment.   With my cancer being incurable,
I have hope that with heavy treatment, that final tumor will shrink and
allow me more time.  Additional treatment will depend on the results of the
first attempt.
I have much to learn about cancer and all that is associated with it;
however, I have come to learn that it is an illness that has no prejudice
and forces those suffering from it to fight against it with aggression.  My
strength comes from my wife and children that have been extremely supportive
during this difficult time in my life.  Cancer has begun to consume me, and
there may be more to come, yet my family’s help in fighting this battle is
giving me the drive to fight even harder.

My battle is beginning and will turn into a fast-speed race soon.   In the
process, I will continue to do all that I can so I can be a survivor, like
many others in hopes to have another opportunity in life…
Please help Max and buy a Don’t Worry Be Happy shirt.
Join Max’s family and friends at the Brain Tumor walk 9/17/11 in Fountain
Valley and donate for Max.

Meet DWBHshirts New Warrior LIZ LORD

“Hi It’s great to be a part of this amazing foundation & thanks for the positive vibes!

My story goes like this:  I had been throwing up for 2 months and thought I had some gallbladder issue so ran hundreds of dollars worth of tests with no answers.  I went to a regular western doctor & he asked me 2 hours worth of questions only to give me anti anxiety meds. Next step I went to a Naturopath that gave me IVs to keep me hydrated with vitamins and nourishment. Middle of March I went with my sis to her fiancé’s mom’s house to get plugged into a machine which shows where your body’s frequencies are. On the way back I went into acute delirium & lost 3 days, they took me to Oregon Health and Science University right away & I was in ICU for a week. I’ve been diagnosed with a cancerous Glioblastoma Stage 4 brain tumor.  The tumor is inoperable & incurable but doctors are hoping to control tumor growth thru radiation/chemo.
I’m grew up in Costa Mesa, went to Mariners/Ensign/ and graduated from Newport Harbor High in 2002.  I played volleyball @ NHHS and was given a full ride to University of Portland where I graduated with honors as an Organizational Communication major w/ specialty in PR in 2006.

After graduating I started as an intern & am now account marketing manager for an awesome company called CIP Marketing. We do retail services for Adidas, Icebreaker, Taylormade, as well as shop planning etc..
I’m 27 live in Portland with my boyfriend Casey & roomies Mark & Nick

Thank you for buying a DWBHshirt and helping me.  I appreciate the support and help.”  ~ LIZ
