MRI shows Fulton has no tumor regrowth
July 31, 2009
A July 22 MRI revealed that PRCA all-around hand Brian Fulton of Valentine, NE has had no tumor re-growth and is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a second surgery to remove cancerous growths from his brain.
Fulton, 46, was paralyzed on his left side from head to toe after the second surgery on Jan. 22, but his family is reporting that he now has about 65 percent use of his left side. Fulton is going to therapy two or three times a week, and doctors are projecting another six months before his brain fully heals.
Fulton is a 12-time Badlands Circuit all-around champion (1984, 1986-90, 1993-95, 1997-99) who qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo as a tie-down roper in 1991 and as a steer wrestler in 1996, when he finished second in the world standings.
