Story Summary

Tery Donelson is determined to keep living his life the only way he knows how. As a 26-year military veteran named mid-Missouri’s “Citizen of the Year” in 2017 by the Military Officers Association of America, Donelson’s work ethic is as relentless as the cancer that has attacked his body for nearly seven years.

When his cancer returned for a fourth time, doctors prescribed Donelson a type of immunotherapy that works by preventing cancer cells from hiding in the body and helps the immune system detect and fight those cells.
