About the Author

The eldest of six children, he lived in Europe for about twenty years before moving to Montreal, Canada and now resides in New York City. As a first time author Ayis has been blessed by being able to write of his own experiences as a survivor of a brain tumor. He is writing this book in the hope of being able to motivate and help people overcome challenges and adversity.

More About the Author

I was born January 11th, 1975 in Lausanne (Switzerland). In 1988 my dreams of being a top athlete going to the Olympics like my father, were cut short when I was diagnosed with a huge brain tumor that would cripple my motor skills.
The surgery was one of the first in the field of medicine and I would be the "guinea pig". Although the surgery was performed by some of the best surgeons in Europe, I had a very slim chance of living. Thanks to God I survived and was able with hard work in reeducation to surpass many medical expectations which were deemed "impossible" back then. Today I have continued to be blessed and completed my Masters Degree from Pace University in the city, I also wrote a book of my life and experiences in the hope of motivating people to overcome adversity in their lives. I continue to this day to fight my disabilities doing the best I can with what God gave me. I now live in Madrid, Spain with my girlfriend.

Stepping Over Myself, written by Ayis A. Caperonis is a book that really allows you to hear someone's amazing story and apply it to the value of life. The book is written in such a way that you feel like you are living through the good times and the bad alongside the author. I would recommend Stepping Over Myself to those who have overcome excruciating situations in their lives as well as those who would like an insight into how it feels to get through incredibly tough times and come out on the other side!Stepping Over Myself: Finding My Way And My Life After A Brain Tumor

Format: Hardcover
Caperonis' 'Stepping Over Myself' recounts his life's trials following a 'test' surgical technique allowed him to beat impossible odds and live through the removal of his brain tumor.

It's an inspiring account of the challenges he faced (some very unique) and the courage he exhibited in overcoming them. It's also a story of distilling life down to its core values and discovering what matters and what's meaningful to each of us. One of the many things I can recommend this novel for - it will make you reflect on your own life's values and meaning.

This is an important book for anyone who's faced adversity or anyone who needs a gentle reminder that living an unfettered life is a true gift. It's an easy, thought filled read and I definitely recommend it!

When your brain changes, so you do you. "Stepping Over Myself: Finding My Way and My Life After a Brain Tumor" is a memoir of recovery as author Ayis A. Caperonis reflects on the challenges he faced in recovering from being one of the first to survive a dangerous process that saved his life, but left him a very different person. Inspirational reading about the human spirit and its desire to go on, "Stepping Over Myself" is a must read for those who want to gain a better understanding of brain tumors.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is the very inspirational and moving story of how Ayis Caperonis, an aspiring professional tennis player, coped with having a brain tumor at the age of 15. It is the story of a young man undergoing the first brain surgery of its type, and the long road to recovery that involved re-learning everything that we take for granted: walking, talking, everything. It also very candidly (and with humor) tells about a boy going through adolescence (with normal raging hormones) who is taunted by friends and ignored by girls. This young man learned to pick himself up and with grit, faith, and determination proved all the doctors wrong about his future abilities. SPOILER ALERT: yes, he did eventually find the woman of his dreams, the lovely and supportive Elvi. I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially to people who are coping with their own physical problems or a care-taker of another in that position. It shows the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
