Adam Bornstein’s father passed away on 21st July, 2023, after suffering from brain cancer for three years. He wrote, “Some doctors told him he had six months to live, at best. They gave him all the grim stats, told him how his body would shut down, and plotted a future hell on earth.”

Bornstein further went on to add how even after getting a death sentence at the age of 65, his father chose not to listen to any of it. He got exceptionally busy living his life, rather than waiting for death. After his treatments, he would continue lifting weights and walking for miles, making sure that his diet was up to the mark.
