Inspirational Stories


acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)

My brother Hopoate is a leukemia survivor. At the young age of 2, he was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and finished his chemotherapy when he was 4-1/2 years old. He has been cancer-free for about 17 years now. He is now 21 and thriving.

Since 2014, my brother and I have been coming to the Light The Night (LTN) walk, and we really enjoy it. It’s a great cause and a wonderful way for people to share their stories about what they went through and a good way for individuals to connect with others. Also, my brother and I were fortunate to volunteer for the cancer survivor lounge back in 2018. The stories are very powerful and inspiring, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
