Even though he had to go through over a dozen chemotherapy treatments, he was always humble and he gave other cancer patients hope and inspiration, knowing that though he may be a celebrity in his community, but with cancer, he knew we are all in one team fighting hard to defeat the evil opponent called cancer.
