Meet Cade Johnson
"The responsibility of survivorship is a sense of selflessness and a sense of purpose."
I believe that I owe these people a great debt, but that I am in no way capable of repaying any of them. Because I am unable to repay them, I believe that I must pay it forward and make their sacrifices worthwhile. I am certain that those who sacrificed something to save my life simply deserve the best version of me each and every day. This has allowed me to overcome obstacles in my life that are much larger and much tougher than you are, as you are fighting for something much greater than yourself. The responsibility of survivorship is a sense of selflessness and a sense of purpose.
I have realized over time that I am not a better person in spite of my cancer, but that I am a better person because of my cancer. It has given me motivation to help others and a responsibility to change the world in an attempt to honor the sacrifices that others once made for me.
