The Many Paths of Life
Where are we Going?
There are so many paths we can take in this world. Everyone makes different daily decisions that carve their path through life. We are influenced by so many ads, movies, shows, and friends. There are so many things and people who are begging for our attention, time, and money. What is it all for though? Why do we do the things we do? Where are we going? Their has to be some answer to these questions for everyone, or I don’t think we would get out of bed everyday and do whatever it is that we do. But, I feel like everyone in general is trying to find some sort meaning in their life. Something that makes them feel like their life is part of something bigger than themselves.
My little brother, Alec Unsicker, is the founder of this non-profit organization. He is 18 years old and has fought hard to reach that age. He was not blessed with a healthy body that so many take for granted. He was born prematurely and had some difficulties that almost took his life. Then when he was 11 years old we found his first tumor that was located near his brain. After intense chemo and radiation, it was put into remission until 2014 when it came back at the base of his spine. He finished his chemo and radiation treatments for the this second bout of cancer a couple months ago, only to discover the cancer is spreading through his spine. There is so much unknown in his situation, we don’t know how much longer he has until the cancer starts to compromise his body.
Alec’s Unique Perspective
He has been battling so hard to live, but for what. What does he have to live for? I think I can give you a little idea. My little brother, although little in stature, has such a strong heart and spirit. He sees life with a perspective that not many people have. He has so much to give. Especially to young cancer patients like himself. That is why we started this foundation. He can help put a smile one these kids faces because he has been their before and he knows what it is like. He can help bring a smile to their face in a way that no one else can.
