Some facts about my treatment:
I was treated with radiation and 7 cycles of chemotherapy
What I want people to know about me:
I want people to know that I try to be a mentor, someone who others can look up to and relate too.
I am involved with Coast to Coast because:
I got involved with Coast to Coast in high school because I just fell in love with what the foundation stands for. Being a childhood cancer survivor, I wanted to give back. To make the road a little easier for other kids and their families going through the process. I feel like the foundation is my second family, everyone that I’ve had the privilege of meeting, and volunteering with are all so nice.
The worst thing about having cancer
I don’t remember a whole about my treatment, but I do remember being weak. I also remember the constant meddles and testing.
My message to other kids undergoing treatment
My message I want other kids to know is that all you’re never alone you have family and friends cheering for you every step of the way. It may seem hard but your journey will make you a better person. I know that my journey has made me a better person.
My Hero is..
My hero is Terry Fox. He stood up for what he believed in and many of us are here today because of him. He is one of the reasons why I’m so passionate about this cause. I wish I could of meet him and perhaps one day I’ll pay my respects.
