In 2014, Colin was diagnosed with burkitt leukemia, a rare, fast-growing type of blood cancer in which too many white blood cells form in the blood and bone marrow. Colin went from being an active teenager who loved hanging out with friends and snowboarding to being so sick that he could barely move. Over the next nine months he endured a rigorous chemotherapy schedule and went into remission just before he started his freshman year of high school.  Colin and his family thought he was finally in the clear but a few months later he developed a weird pain that led to the diagnosis of a secondary cancer caused by his chemotherapy treatment.  Today, Colin is 18 years old and continues his fight against acute myeloid leukemia (AML) while still attending his senior year of high school.
