"To live a happy life. To keep everyone happy and healthy. That's all I want. Health. That's the biggest thing for me"

I was just a normal 19 year old lad, living my life, just chasing dreams really. I wanted to finish college. I was looking at going to New Zealand to do an apprenticeship in agriculture. But then things changed.

Cancer is probably the worst thing that's ever happened to me but as weird as it sounds, probably the best thing that’s ever happened to me as well because it gives you a different outlook on life. I won’t act like everyday is sunshine and rainbows but when I have bad days I think, look at the bigger picture. I could not be here but I am. There’s always tomorrow.
