THE STORY:

Iyan is a light-hearted and fun-loving 21-year-old who loves music, especially his favorite band, A Day to Remember. Originally from Puerto Rico, he moved to the Orlando to seek a better life where he began studying sound technology at Valencia College. Just after his 20th birthday, Iyan received news that would change his life forever: he had cancer.

"I found a lump on the side of my neck about the size of a golf ball... I woke up in the middle of the night with the worst pain I had ever been in my life, I could barely breathe and my chest felt as if it were collapsing. After 3 days of this, I drove myself to the hospital (my parents had moved to Texas because of their jobs) and ended up spending the night there after several tests... Six days later, the doctor walks into my room and I am diagnosed with Advanced Stage 2B Hodgkin's Lymphoma." - Iyan, Hodgkin's lymphoma

Iyan had to put his life plans on hold and quickly found himself undergoing chemotherapy. But, he wouldn't let his diagnosis affect his spirits.

"So in general I had cancer...which kinda sucks. Really bad. On the bright side I got a ticket to binge watch  shows on Netflix, play video games, read and listen to music. That's where you, Jeremy McKinnon, Neil Westfall, Josh Woodard, Alex Shelnutt and Kevin Skaff; otherwise known as A Day to Remember, come in. I can't put into words how WSMFY and CC helped me through my treatment but I want to thank you. Thank you for making amazing music and putting it out there for the world to hear. It offered me the small breaks that I needed to catch my breath and take one day at a time during my treatment." - Iyan, Hodgkin's lymphoma

We want your help to give him 'A Weekend to Remember' seeing his favorite band with his best friend from Puerto Rico!

Some details of his Life Adventure include:

  • 2 nights stay in Jacksonville, FL
  • Weekend passes to Rockville Festival
  • A Day to Remember merchandise
  • Gas money and transportation to the festival
  • A few surprises to make it super awesome!
