Near the end of 2014 my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, and in early 2015 my father was diagnosed with colon cancer.

Inspiration from my mom and great-grandmother was complimented by one of the biggest inspirations in my life, my cousin Jacob. I was just eight years old, but still vividly remember Jacob being born and visiting him for the first time in the hospital. Jacob was born with Downs Syndrome and had open heart surgery shortly after his birth.
