We knew each other as children.
Friends at the beginning.
He was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma November 9, 2011. I was the first one he told that was outside his family. (Thats how close we are guysss.) I was so shocked, I never dreamed anything like that would happen. I promised I would be with him through it all. The sad thing is, we live 2,353 miles away from each other. So I couldn't physically be there, but I was always there if he needed someone to talk to. It made me more than happy when he took advantage of that and came to me for everything he wanted to talk about.
As much as I wanted to be strong for him, it always seemed like he was being strong for me. (Like what?) He was always the one telling ME "It's okay. Its going to be okay. I'm going to be okay." What a kid! And throughout his treatments he always seemed to keep a positive attitude. ALSO throughout his treatments he managed to get straight A's. This kid is amazing okay. I'm telling you! AAANNND he got a scholarship to go study at Oxford University this past summer. And don't worry. He went into remission March 27, 2012. :) My boy is cancer free!
We are very best friends. We tell each other everything. I feel so comfortable around him and I feel like I can be my 100% self when I talk to him. He is my fashion consultant. We are soul mates and read each other's minds. And to be honest, we are absolutely hilarious. I don't know what I would do without him!
