“My dream is to become an oncologist (a cancer doctor) to work with veteranssomeday. ”
“A couple of years ago, my grandfather was diagnosed with stagefour pancreatic cancer and he was over in the VA hospital in Sturgis. He wasgiven a few months to live and he didn’t even make it a few weeks. Watchinghim lay in that bed die really affected me. To the point that I knew that Iwanted to change something for future veterans. I volunteer over thereduring the summer. I work in the chemotherapy room. I see these veteranscome in, get their chemotherapy, get their pumps that are still giving themchemotherapy, walk back out, and go back to work. I don’t think I’ve everseen such strength in someone before in my life. So, while I’m doing it for mygrandpa, I’m also doing it for the rest of the veterans.”
