Doctors Said 2 Months; Man With Aggressive Brain Tumor Is Still Alive 6 Years Later

Israel Lemus is a walking miracle—a medical mystery his doctors can't quite understand.

Six years ago, he was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma—the same aggressive form of brain cancer that took the late Sen. John McCain's life in the summer of 2018. At the time, Lemus was given a mere two months to live.

Since then, he's gotten engaged, married, purchased a home and changed careers, according to KHOU-TV.

"To me, it's 100% God," Lemus told the news outlet. "Honestly, I'm thankful to God for every day. The first thing I do when I wake up and the last thing I do before going to sleep is thank God for that day."

Lemus, who was diagnosed at age 29, said he doesn't even feel sick.
