THE STORY:

RALPH'S JOURNEY:

I'm a 32 year old father, loving boyfriend, educator, basketball junkie, and punk rock enthusiast.  Hopefully, in September, I'll be able to add cancer survivor to that list.  

In mid-March of 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage Four Diffuse Large B-Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (a mouthful, I know).  The news was shocking at the time.  I'm too young, I have a son who's not even two, a beautiful girlfriend, I'm going back to school to earn my school administrator's credential, how could I have cancer?  How could my life be threatened like this?  I have so much left to do and to live for, this can't be happening!  But it was, and dwelling on the how and why wasn't going to do anything to cure me of this awful disease.  Once I had that epiphany, I decided to focus on doing whatever I needed to in order to beat the disease and return to the life I've been blessed with.  

Today, I am happy to say that I feel fantastic.  The treatments I've been receiving are working exactly how they're supposed to be and they are annihilating this disease.  My final treatment is in mid-September and I couldn't be more anxious to get there.  However, that's not the end of the fight for me.  There are thousands of young adults like myself who are diagnosed with cancer each year.  I'll be participating in the Long Beach Bike Tour and raising money for Stupid Cancer so that young people with cancer are not left to fight their battle alone.  Please help by donating whatever you can to this great community, organization, and cause.
