My platform is revolved around "what it means to be a fighter." This past year my Dad had 1/5th of his face removed after a skin cancer tumor was found hidden beneath his forehead. This was followed by a facial constructive surgery, radiation and countless other treatment methods. Regardless of my Father's pain, he woke up every day ready to fight what was before him. This was the 2nd time skin cancer has inflected my family. The first was when my Uncle Charlie was diagnosed with type 4 melanoma at only 40 years old. He too, took every morning head on and ready to fight. My Uncle Charlie ended up passing away after a 2 year battle, but never EVER did he lose his willingness to fight. These experienced instilled in me the importance of making daily choices that are only going to better you in the long run, whether that be mentally or physically. I want others to "be happy, be healthy, be a fighter" every.single.day. I want them to love who they are so much so that they are invested in their mental and physical health in every choice that they make. I want them to understand that everyone has a reason to fight.
