Alternative Text

Ayis Caperonis is a National Swiss champion in swimming with two Olympic victories under his belt, but his athletic journey was suddenly thwarted when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He had to undergo surgery which could hamper his motor skills to the extent that he may never swim again, but Ayis surpassed medical expectations and soon returned as a walk-on swimmer for the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. He then went on to share his inspiring survival story in the form of two books titled “Stepping over Myself” and “Defeating Depression.”
