Coastal Cancer Center welcomes brain cancer patient Greg Sousa to Myrtle Beach on Wednesday as part of his inspiring 700-mile cycling journey to raise $10,000 for brain tumor research.

Coastal Cancer Center’s team will greet Greg on Wednesday, September 25, at 2:30 p.m. at its Myrtle Beach office on 8121 Rourk Street as part of its ongoing efforts to help inspire current patients and caregivers in the fight against cancer.

During that time, Greg will meet local cancer patients and survivors as part of the Badousa Brain Bike Bonanza that promotes movement as a tool for living and thriving through cancer. In July 2012, Greg learned he had a lesion in his brain 2-inches in diameter that was determined to be malignant cancer – grade III anaplastic oligodendroglioma – and now uses exercise as a recovery tool.

Despite his diagnosis, Greg’s multi-state journey starts Tuesday at Duke Tisch Brain Tumor Center in Durham, NC, and will end on October 3 in Ormond Beach, FL. He plans to bike an average of 90 miles each day throughout his 700-mile journey with his doctor’s permission. Greg’s journey is about healing, hope and health for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer.

Funds will benefit the Badousa Brain team in the Angels Among Us fundraiser.
