Every college student is excited to be going home, graduating, or embarking on a grand adventure for the summer. I was supposed to have an internship with an amazing PR company and a whole summer in NYC. What I hadn't planned for was being kicked out onto the street at the last minute. In other words, I was homeless.
Let me introduce you to the idiot that was me 11 years ago. I actually said, "Man, that's nothing compared to what I have coming to me." I still cringe when I think of those words today, because when you are going through cancer, the last thing that will ever help you is comparing your situation to others.
