The True Winner

On October 1st, Phillip Timp lost his battle with ALS. I write lost because the world lost an exceptional example of a man who was the epitome of how we all should live. But Phillip himself did not lose. He was dealt a hand which he played with more grace and determination than anyone could have imagined. He enveloped himself in all that he loved, he persevered to spread his message of Silver Linings to as many as he could, and he became a beacon of inspiration to any and everyone he met.

Philip did not lose his battle, he leveraged it into an opportunity to live his life at 110%, and in that battle, he emerged as the true winner.
