Anyway, I stumbled upon the profile of one of the guys who I supervised, and found out that he has cancer. He's only 18 years old and based on the very few postings on his MS blog, he's going though a lot.
I'm not quite sure what kind of cancer he has, as he didn't specifcally say the type, but he did smoke a lot and started at an early age.... so one can speculate it's lung cancer. But, it's only speculation. Regardless of what kind of cancer he has, he has it, and at such a young age.
I hope Chris is able to pull though this. He's such a bright kid with a lot going for him.
