cancer in adolescents
"Cancer gave me an early brush with life and death that in turn gave me an early maturity and understanding of the importance of family, friends, and hope."
"I'm going to take this horrible experience and turn it into a positive for other people. It's hard for people in the hospital, and I'm going to make it better. I want to make a difference, and leave the world better than I found it."
"We have a lot to celebrate and we have a lot to fight for. As long as people are suffering from cancer, I know I have a purpose."
