Tim McGrath is 38 and comes from Michigan state. When he felt a sharp pain in his jaw one day, there was no way he could have known that this marked the last day of his, until now, normal life.
He went to the doctors and they established what was causing the pain. Tim had a synovial sarcoma growing in his face. This is a rare, aggressive form of soft-tissue tumor, that often develops without any particular symptoms, but which can spread very quickly throughout the body.
