When I was in the sixth grade my little brother was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia It was a very arduous time for my family and I but we remained strong for him Being diagnosed at only nine years old he was so tough and ended up being cancer free after only a year and a half of chemotherapy That was around six years ago and he has remained cancer free ever sinceWhen I think back on everything he had to endure I cant even imagine what it would be like but his story has changed how I think about life and his success has really motivated me to do something more for myself and others Despite what he went through hes always been so driven to do well in school and keep a good job On the other hand I messed around in high school and was so reluctant to have a job Last week I watched Jacob walk the stage for his high school graduation and I can honestly say Ive never been so proud of someone in my entire life Hes one of the strongest people Ive ever met and even though he was dealt some pretty bad cards in his childhood he stayed strong and has been so successful in everything hes tried to do As I saw him walk across the stage and heard the announcer call out his name I choked up a little and thought to myself How can a kid who has been through so much be so inspired to be educated and make something of himself The answer to that question is actually pretty simple just because you had something bad happen to you doesnt have to define what will happen to you in the future When I think back on how I acted in high school I am so ashamed of myself I watched my brother turn out to be a very smart young adult
