My name is Connor Wiltsie and I am a scholar athlete. I am a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma at the age of 8 years old. I have gained a lot of strength from this experience and value the new life I have been given. I hope to become a doctor and give back to those who helped me. My grandfather died of skin cancer and I am hopeful that by becoming a doctor I can someday make a difference in helping to cure this terrible disease.
