Anthony

Never Lose the Will to Fight

Never Lose the Will to Fight    Anthony was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's B Cell Lymphoma in the summer of 2012.  He went to the doctor’s office one day for something completely unrelated to cancer symptoms  and happened to find out that he had a tumor in his chest. Anthony had to go through  chemotherapy treatment, but today he is in the best shape of his life. He feels like he can  accomplish anything he wants.     Anthony’s wish was to go on a European cruise. As long as he could remember he had  always wanted to go to Europe and see what it was like. He felt like a European cruise was the  perfect opportunity to be able to see Europe. His favorite part of the wish was seeing new things  and meeting new people to learn all about their culture. He was also excited that he got to share  this awesome experience with his mom, dad, and two little sisters. Anthony and his family had a  wonderful time on the cruise.     Since Anthony has been back from his amazing cruise, he has graduated high school.  He is very proud to say that he graduated on time even though he could not go to school for a  whole year because of his cancer treatment. He plans on attending Spring Hill College in the  Fall and is going to major in Chemistry. Anthony hopes that he can change the world one day  and not waste this second chance at life that he has received. He says, “never lose the will to  fight because only then is when you truly lost.”
