Year: Senior
Dancing for: Willy Nelson
Bio: Wake 'N Shake is a 12-hour dance marathon that will be held March 23rd, 2019 at Wake Forest University, benefiting the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund. For 12-hours, students, alumni, and faculty members come together to stay standing in support of all those affected by cancer, asking for donations in support of their participation. This year I will be dancing the full 12 hours in honor or my brother's friend Willy Nelson who is battling stomach cancer at the age of 23. This type of cancer is extremely rare for his age and was diagnosed after he had been suffering immense back pains. He has undergone 11 of 12 rounds of chemo and has been responding amazingly well to the treatments. After this next round of chemo, he will undergo radiation and/or surgery. Thanks to the hard-working doctors in Dallas and Houston and to medical research, Willy is doing very well. Wake n Shake is a night to support those who suffer or who have suffered with cancer. I want to celebrate his incredible fight and the fights of the other cancer patients including Willy's friend and my brother, Blake Adamson. It is through fundraisers and donations such as these that there will be more success stories like Willy's and Blake's in the future.
