Bartrum Racing

My name is Cordell Bartrum, I want to be a professional motocross racer, and I have an inoperable brain tumor. I was diagnosed when I was just three-years-old. I am now 16, and I want to call attention to this medical condition. My tumor is incurable due to its location. My mom said that she could not believe that in this day and age that doctors would say that there is no cure.....but it is true. It is hard to imagine, but there are some brain tumors that medical science cannot yet cure. I want to show people that it is important to follow your dreams and never stop living life to its fullest.
