Rohan Herring at the X-Factor

Rohan is a friend of mine from Australia that was dealt a difficult hand when he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 24. He underwent aggressive chemo treatment for an inoperable tumor the size of a grapefruit in his chest.

In the present he is engaged to the love of his life and making his dreams a reality by performing as often as possible. His musical ability is turning heads as he also performed at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood, CA. When I lived in Australia, he always talked about his dream to move to America and perform. It is exciting to watch his dreams become reality over time.

It is incredible to see how far he has come since his diagnosis. He was certainly a role model for my attitude when I was diagnosed with cancer a little over a year later. Watching Rohan go through his cancer experience with such a positive attitude and come out the other end helped me to believe that I could not only be okay, but flourish. Cancer was a mere speed bump for Rohan and if anything, has only encouraged him more to pursue his dreams with passion, sincerity, and optimism. Let this be a lesson for all of us.
