Kassidy is living a unique life. She has an awesome tattoo that says “Never Give Up”. This small phrase could mean a lot of things to a lot of us. We all have things that we could flippantly apply that phrase to- but for Kassidy, this phrase is a big deal. Perhaps the biggest deal. Kassidy is in the midst of a full fledged battle against cancer and her motto is NEVER GIVE UP. Through the tests, and the harsh medicine, the tired days, and the limitations that the cancer tries to put on her life experience, she remembers to NEVER GIVE UP. And you know what? She does it with a smile. She has SUCH a bright future, and this fight that is already paying off will continue to do so, and she will look back and know that she NEVER GAVE UP. She is truly a gem, and has some qualities we can all look up to. I know I do.
Kassidy, I am so glad I met you. You are a star. Thank you for being you, and for showing us how to live. Oh! and congratulations on graduating next month! Be proud, girl.
