“Cancer sucks, but you can still do what you love. I was 17, a freshman in college and diagnosed with stage-4 osteo in my left femur. After a year of chemo, two thoracotomies and implant surgery, I was able to go back to school and graduate with a degree in Emergency Medical Service Management. I’m now a Tour Chief with Jersey City Medical Center and a member of the New Jersey Disaster Medical Assistant Team (DMAT). I still battle late-effects from treatment, but that doesn’t stop me from living my passion of helping people.”
Mike’s #Osteosarcoma fight also inspired his sister Kelli Wright to help others. She is dedicated to #MakeItBetter for #PediatricCancer kids in her work at CureSearch.
