A lesson on positivity

18-year-old Jeremy from London will be the first person to tell you how lucky he is, a surprising statement from someone who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma just a year ago. Now in remission, Jeremy recently returned from his Starlight wish; to give a speech at the United Nations in New York City.

Jeremy discussed the power of positivity through adversity and how important it is when facing tough goals like beating cancer and fighting poverty. He ended his speech by expressing ‘There will be things that get in our way for seemingly no reason at all, but what we need to remember is, not everything happens for a reason, but we can give reason to everything that happens’.

We can’t tell you how proud we are of Jeremy, this young man knows how to give a speech!
