Carlsbad's Jason Poznaks, a youth pastor at Calvary Church, told KGTV, that during his stint on the show, he saw signs that something wasn’t right. “Head plants, face plants and a lot of neck-snapping, which kind of alerted me that there was something going on.”
After the show taped in April and his pain got worse so he went to see a specialist. He was then diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a fist.
A surgery to remove the tumor was performed about two weeks ago. Poznaks is now doing well.
