Cody, I've only met you but know your dad pretty well. You are an amazing chip off the block; your story is so encouraging. It's good to know a young person who endures and remains energized to continue in life and share with others.
I am suffering with three friends who have cancer; one in remission 3 + years after being told he had 18 months to live. One who has been fighting lung cancer after being misdiagnosed and treated for the wrong disease for 5 months, but after 6 months diagnosis, treatment, and later prognosis is that one lung is tumor free and the other almost. And another friend I have been close to since Sophmore algebra, who is awaiting prognosis with pancratic cancer.
I will share your story with each, and encourage them to be as strong. Again, thank you for sharing and for enduring with grace.
