He was the star athlete, the captain ball. I was a science girl, a wallflower. Boys like him didn’t go out with girls like me. But that night changed everything.
He talked to me. He destroyed all the barriers and stereotypes I had in mind. He made me laugh.

I have yet to talk to him. I have yet to destroy all the barriers and stereotypes of cancer in my mind. I have yet to make him laugh.
