Kareem: Cancer doesn't discriminate

March 25, 2015




I saw the cancer as a challenge to my very existence. It’s only natural to frame things up in your mind based on past experiences. My father nearly died from colorectal cancer and I carry the same gene related to colorectal cancer as he did. I watched that disease claim the lives of my grandfather and my uncle, so I already had a very definite perspective on how devastating cancer can be. These were strong men, full of life, just like me.


You see, cancer doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care how many NBA titles you’ve won or how much yoga you do.
