My Story

Kyle has his future perfectly planned. First, he’s going to work for a cancer-related company. Second, he’s going to become the President of the United States. If anyone has the motivation and strength to reach these ambitious goals, it’s Kyle. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a common form of bone cancer, Kyle has been through 98 rounds of chemotherapy, four lung operations and a major leg operation. His leg operation included removing and replacing his knee, four inches of his femur and eight inches of his tibia with stainless steel. Kyle stayed positive every step of the way. Kyle has faced other hardships in his life besides cancer, he never let that stop him from reaching his goals! Known as “the future politician,” Kyle is outgoing, energetic and always has a smile. If you ask him about his disease Kyle will tell you, “I had cancer, cancer never had me." Kyle is currently a Senior at Del Norte High School in Albuquerque. He is the Senior Clas Vice President and the 1st Vice President of the New Mexico Association of Student Councils. Kyle is very involved in his school and in the community. He is a Spokesperson and Ambassador for numerous foundation; Children's Miracle Network, Sunshine Kids Foundation, Children's Cancer Fund of NM and more! He is also an intern for the Senate Majority Leader, Senator Michael S. Sanchez. Kyle stays busy with all of his activities, traveling and playing competitive volleyball.
