Back To School

As some of you know I am about to enter my last semester of law school at Nova Southeastern. I am very excited! I first got sick during the second semester of my second year. Even though I couldn’t sleep and could barely stand I kept attending classes. Law school is very important to me and I wasn’t going to let anything stand in my way. When I went to the ER and found out that I had advanced cancer and needed treatment I quickly forgot about law school. I wasn’t sure I was going to survive the big C and finishing law school was something I figured was never going to happen now.

Well here I am one year after finishing treatment. My treatments took about six months and during that time I missed my second semester of my second year. However, I returned the very next semester. My mind was a little foggy from the chemo, my stomach, bladder, digestive system etc…a little out of whack from the radiation but I was back. I finished my second semester of my second year with an increase in my GPA. Then, when my classmates that I had been with since the first day of law school were finishing there last semester of law school, I finished my first semester of my third year. Again, an increase in my GPA. Then I took one class over the summer, while I was very sick, and got an A. Now I am about to start my final chapter of law school.

Law school is something I have always wanted to do. Many people were surprised but supportive of my decision to return to law school so quickly after being diagnosed and treated for cancer. Cancer stole a lot from me, more than many people know, but I was not going to let it take being a lawyer from me. So, thank you to everyone who has supported me through this journey. I am almost there and when I accomplish this I know I can do anything!
