Biggest take-away(s) from your cancer experience:
Cancer is a word surrounded by fear. You can’t beat cancer in one day, but you can lose to it if you give into it. There is always someone who has it worse than you, so what are you going to do with the opportunity that they don’t have?


Words to live by: 
“With time comes great prosperity” “Don’t be bitter, be better” “Work smarter not harder” “Don’t give up, don’t ever give up” “The longer you chase your dream, the stronger your legs will become to catch your dream.”
