As a highly respected Los Angeles firefighter who surfs to ease the stress, Gus thought he had experienced it all. But that wasn’t the case: Blood work taken during a routine physical exam lead to a shocking diagnosis: chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). He could have stayed on chemotherapy which put him into remission, but instead opted for a chance at a cure with City of Hope. Today, he’s back fighting fires, and surfing the waves.
