Gregory Strachov has had a serious medical year. On January 11th, he had to go through major surgery. A meningioma tumor has been found between the two halves of his brain. The top brain surgeon in the country, Dr. VanLoveren, operated on Greg for twelve hours and removed most of the tumor. Because of complications, Greg had to remain in the hospital for over three months. His entire right side was completely paralyzed. It took great will and effort, but Greg began to move his leg and arm and went from a wheel chair to a cane, and now his arm and leg are working well.
It was a miracle. Greg was unable to paint all year, and is currently going to the hospital for another major surgery during October 11th. Due to all this, Greg decided to allow some of the key paintings in his own collection to become available. These are paintings that were in his parents collection.
