A quick note from the Editor-

My friend's heroic stand when he was diagnosed with cancer...

One minute you’re at the doctor getting something minor checked out and then the next moment…

“You have cancer.”

My friend Chris understands this all too well. In December 2003 (just two days before Christmas!), when he was just 26 years old, he was diagnosed with advanced cancer. It was definitely NOT the Christmas present Chris was expecting, and he was immediately rushed into the cancer treatment system, but a decision he made a few weeks later changed everything.

So what was his hardest decision?

--> I’ll let Chris tell you in his own words, right here
