Jon Lester was blindsided when he was diagnosed with cancer, which is always devastating… and yet, he says the disease changed his life in really great ways. He also happens to be a pitcher in the MLB!
He is NOT saying that cancer itself is a positive thing, but if you can beat it, positive things can come from it! It brought him closer to his parents, and he was able to take in and understand love in new ways. The best thing, though, is how it made him tenacious in baseball and helping the world around him!
