College Student with Breast Cancer Didn't Miss a Single Class

Colleen didn't miss a single class

She worked with her professors and advisors at school to figure out a way to get all her classes scheduled Monday through Thursday. Everyone was extremely supportive of Colleen and accommodated any scheduling changes as needed. Colleen made it through her entire senior year battling cancer without missing a single class or homework assignment! Colleen says that she was pissed off at her own disease and refused to let cancer make her miss any exams or homework. So, she decided to show cancer who's boss.

Though she had to spend a lot of weekends at home, Colleen still made the most of her college experience. She even continued to go to parties if she had enough energy to go to them.
