Nancy from Oakland, CA

Never give up and always value life

Ever since I was six years old i know life for me would be different. At the age of six I was diagnosed with a condition called Neurofibromatosis Type I.I have always been smaller than most my classmates, and i would always get bullied for being short. I would cry nights because of what people would tell me. My life drastically change on April of 2013. In April 5th I had surgery to remove a tumor from the back my head. The tumor would make me lose movement from hands and feet if not removed immediately.The surgery was 7 ½ hours. The day when we went in, I was nervous and seeing my mom cry made me more scared. I wanted to break down crying but I was trying to stay strong for my parents so they could see it was gonna be okay. I took 2 weeks off of school I struggled went back to school. I had to complete the missing work, even though before the surgery I completed a lot of extra credit. After the week I was in school I had raised my grades up. I would go to my classes at lunch and after school to complete work.I would also ask for help from my classmates.I never gave up and I always fought for my life and to be successful. If I could teach everyone in the world one thing it would be to never give up to fight for your dreams. You shouldn't give up just because you feel like life is over instead you should keep fighting for life.Although life may put you through a lot you have to stay strong and always keep your head up. No matter what life puts you through always fight overcome the obstacles never give up.
