LAND O' LAKES, Florida -- Steven Barnabei will never forget his November 2nd trip to see his doctor.
"He said, 'Steven, you're having brain surgery today,' and he paused for a second, and I thought the whole world paused, too," Barnabei said. "My mind was going."
Barnabei, a junior cross country runner at Land O'Lakes High School, was in great shape. He could run for miles and had just set a personal record with a time of 17:10 in a mid-October meet, but nagging headaches raised some eyebrows.
