In 1997 Anthony was training to make the Canadian Olympic Judo team to compete in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. On his way to coach his school’s football team he sustained a severe Traumatic Brain Injury as well as many other life threatening internal injuries as a result of a horrific motorcycle accident. At the scene of the accident, Anthony stopped breathing and did not have any vital signs so he was airlifted to St. Michael’s Trauma Hospital where he remained in a deep coma for over 2 weeks with major trauma to his head as well as to the rest of his body.
Not only did he badly damage his brain, but he also seriously injured his internal organs including his heart, lungs, spleen, kidneys and intestines.
Anthony was not expected to live and had to undergo numerous life-saving surgeries including Neurosurgery, Open-Heart surgery, Lung surgery, General surgery, Vascular surgery, Orthopaedic surgery, and Reconstructive Plastic surgery. Anthony’s head and face had been smashed so badly that he broke most of the bones in his face, including his nose, jaw, cheekbone, and the bone that surrounded his left eye (Orbital rim fracture). As a result, Anthony had reconstructive plastic surgery to place Titanium screws and plates in his face to hold the broken bones together.
After over 10 major surgeries and spending a year in various hospitals, Anthony’s miraculous survival and unbelievable recovery astonished the medical experts.
In 2013, Anthony was forced to ‘START OVER‘ again after he sustained two more Traumatic Brain Injuries while at school. During his recovery and after a follow-up doctor’s appointment, Anthony received a diagnosis of skin cancer. This required surgery to remove the cancerous growth after which Anthony focussed his attention on using various alternative treatments. It was these alternative self-healing methods that enabled Anthony to transform and heal himself, Naturally!
