THOMAS Smith has been through more health scares in his 15 years on earth than most people go through in a lifetime. He beat lymphoma as a 12-year-old, and then was diagnosed with bone cancer in his knee two years later. Still, he manages to maintain his love for and focus in the sport of swimming, setting two National Age Group records with his Southern California Aquazot teammates in that time.
In the article found in the attachment, read what keeps Smith motivated and moving forward. He sets goals in and out of the pool, and believes that, with hope, his dreams can become a reality.
