Caleb’s Mountain

Rock Cancer Care

It has now been ten years that I have been in a battle with this leukemia.  Even at the young age of nine, I was fighting for my life and just as determined to live a life to the full, just as God intended.  I went the typical route of receiving chemotherapy for a little more than two years and responded exceptionally well.  I remember times I would receive chemo and then head straight to a flag-football game right after or to whatever sport I was involved in.  The truth is, I was a starter on virtually every team I joined and an all-star amongst my peers in every arena of competition I involved myself in.  I was the most athletic of all my friends; the captain of every playground sport, I had it all.  Most of you who know me understand that I like to refer to these days as “back in my prime.”  And it truly felt like it.  The truth is I still know my best days are ahead.  It’s difficult sometimes because I’ll be looking at pictures or remembering how I was back then and just think,’ did someone just fast forward the clock on my body 50 years?’  Seriously, if my lively, rambunctious, feisty nine-year-old former self were here today, he would take me down in five seconds.  No question, it would not even be funny…
