Biggest take-away(s) from your cancer experience
Things don’t always go as planned. However, having a positive attitude and getting creative can go a long way to help you squeeze every little ounce out of life. I’ve learned to take full advantage of every opportunity presented to me and to truly cherish and love all of my friends, family, teachers, coaches, and my entire support network.
