Why is quitting such an epidemic in today’s world? Why do people quit, give up and lose confidence in their abilities? The Jason Merkle story is about one young man’s courageous fight against terminal cancer. As a young teenager, Jason began experiencing noticeable tremors in his hands, and as the problem persisted, his doctors discovered a life-threatening blockage in his brain stem caused by a tumor. After surviving two brain surgeries as a teenager, the benign tumor morphed into a cancerous mass. Given almost no chance to survive by all the medical experts, Jason and his family chose to reject mainstream, conventional treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, turning instead to alternative medicine. While the situation seemed grave, Jason’s parents would go to the ends of the Earth to keep their child alive. In need of a miracle, Don’t Quit became the family’s daily mantra.
