Well I am not going to beat around the bush the big news is that I am CANCER FREE! :] Although I cannot say that I am "Cancer free" because it could come back at any time I can say I am not doing treatment. I go in for MRI's every 3 months to get check ups and make sure that my tumor will not come back.
With that said, I need to fill in where I last wrote.
Last year I got to finish my few classes I was doing at home. I passed my english class both semesters and passed my math class for the one semester. I was very happy because that let me say I am a junior even though I might have to stay behind a semester or two. Over the summer I did many different things. I was trying to get back into hockey shape so I tried to get on the ice and work out just about every day.
I was able to do this so it took up much of my time. Mid July I got to do my Make A Wish which was to go to Sweden and play hockey with this incredible team. What an amazing experience. I truly will never forget it. I got to play some of the best hockey of my life, make some amazing friends (both from my team and the Swedish teams), and tour the beautiful town of Kunsbacka, where the tournament was. Here are some of the pictures. I took around 400 pictures but I can't put all of them up, Email me or my mom if you want a disk of all of the pictures that I took.

With the team on the last night.
Again, Like I said It was so unbelievable. It's a trip I will never forget. That was a little over a week. When I got back it took a few days to adjust to the time again and I slept quite a bit. The rest of my summer was getting ready for hockey and enjoying my last few days of summer. The last few days of summer I was able to go see my Aunt Jen in California.
In California my Aunt Jen and I went clothes shopping for school. It was so much fun she really is the greatest Aunt ever. :] I got to clothes shop, go to In and Out Burger, watch Gabreals football practices, help Molly with homework and give her countless piggy back rides, and hang out with McClean.
As you can See I had a fantastic summer. I am so grateful for everyday I was able to live during summer after such a life threatening illness.
Currently now, I am play hockey for Arapahoe Minor AA, playing lacrosse for my school, and doing very well in school. I am very happy where I am right now and hope to keep pushing myself forward.
Thanks to all,
Keep looking for blogs throughout the year I will try to do one every month!
I would like to think of my life as pretty amazing right now.
I would like to close with a song thats been stuck in my head. Although I do not like this artist's attitude these lyrics speak to me.
"It's amazing, I'm the reason Everybody fired up this evening I'm exhausted, barely breathing Holding on to what I believe in No matter what you'll never take that from me My reign is as far as your eyes can see It's amazin', so amazin', so amazin', so amazin'It's amazin', so amazin', so amazin', so amazin 'It's amazin'"- Kanye West.
