I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma when I was 16 years old. I struggled through 7 rounds of chemo and almost 25 days of radiation therapy over the course of 9 months. During my battle I faced some very severe side effects and dealt with sickness and depression. However, I was also able to see some of the good parts of my life at the same time. Through support from friends and family and my faith in GOD I was able to make it through the hard times. I am now a Sophomore at Regis University studying to eventually become a catholic priest (God-willing). I also speak at different events to help fundraiser for cancer research or to inspire people who need to hear my story for some reason in their life.
