Overview

There are moments of time when our lives turn from calm to chaos in a split second. Such was the case with Tom Matson, whose life suddenly went from a normal existence in Minnesota to a fight for survival when, after a hockey concussion, he had an MRI and was delivered the stunning and crushing news that he had a brain tumor.

In Unfrozen, author and father Tom Matson presents readers with an extraordinary look into his life and the hard-earned life lessons he gained on how to thrive following his diagnosis.

With a candid and poignant narrative, Matson seamlessly blends together stories from his childhood along with a detailed account of the medical and emotional journey that he embarked on to overcome his brain tumor. As a result, not only does he provide a thoughtful and loving legacy for his children; he also gives inspiration and hope for anyone who is going through a similar major medical battle directly or with a loved one.
