Dr. Dale Kelly, DC, CFMP

Back in 1992, Dr. Kelly was losing energy and could not keep up with his work or family responsibilities. He went to his regular physician, who did some basic blood tests. After the tests came back, the doctor told him that he must be depressed and wanted him to start taking an antidepressant.

Not satisfied with that diagnosis, Dr. Kelly then went to an endocrinologist, who did some additional blood work. The endocrinologist discovered that he had a brain tumor.

Though it wasn’t malignant, it was growing. The tumor was affecting his hormones and vision. Doctors gave him two choices: Undergo surgery and risk losing some brain function in the process or start on tumor-shrinking drugs. He reluctantly opted for the drugs.
