He’s a young man, but he’s already felt the pain of losing a friend to cancer.
It happened a few years ago and that tragedy lit a flame inside my young friend. He told me how wrong it was that his pal died from his cancer. He said he decided then and there, he was going to be a ‘cancer doctor.’ He’s stuck to that pledge.
He’s in college now and his “true North” hasn’t wavered one degree.
He’s aware of the long road ahead of him. The years of med school, the dollars needed to fund that education, and the commitment he must make to reach his goal.
I have no doubt he’ll make it. It’s so much more than being smart: this guy is on a mission to save lives.
His loss is going to be our gain.
