Diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor at age 5, Kyle’s life has been full of twists and turns. Even after radiation therapy and lots of doctor visits, he still experiences the effects of his brain stem tumor daily. Now, thirty years after diagnosis and far from the ‘failure to thrive’ he had once been described as in his medical reports, Kyle has realized how precious life really is, how we cannot do it on our own, and how important it is to live on purpose with Faith, Focus, & Flexibility.
Kyle has earned a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obsipo, as well as a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from California State University, Fresno. He has been the recipient of multiple awards and scholarships, and is nationally certified as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. He has been an editorial assistant, the co-author of a published scholarly journal article, and he is excited to share the lessons, perspectives, and active faith that come from living with a brain stem tumor.
Kyle Campbell is a Christian, a preacher, a poet, a philosopher, a professor, and an advocate… but some of his favorite identities are husband and father. Born and raised in the Central Valley of California, Kyle lives in Visalia, CA, with his wonderful wife, Lori, two amazing boys, a third boy on the way, and their dog, Macy.
