Team 17 Strong

Anthony Myers was a normal sixteen-year-old just two short weeks ago. Life was as good as it gets for a sixteen-year-old boy. Anthony was learning to drive, scoring touchdowns on the football field, working hard in school, and hanging out with friends. He enjoyed spending time with his parents, Ed and Jessy, older brother Nico, and younger sister Gia. However, on Sunday October 21, Anthony’s life changed drastically. He woke up early that morning and started seizing. His mom rushed him to the Reading Hospital, and from there he was quickly transferred to the Hershey Medical Center. Doctors performed an MRI and discovered a brain tumor. A biopsy was performed, and the Myers family received the devastating news. Anthony was diagnosed with brain cancer: Stage 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma.
