Although many kind hearts give to others throughout their lifetime, it takes a special soul to make sure they leave a legacy of giving back to others. Lindsey Hammortree was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma on May 12, 2010. This is a type of cancer of soft tissue. When Lindsey was diagnosed, she was at stage three. After her fist dose of chemo, she quickly lost her hair and her ability to walk. Even though she was always having complications from the treatment, she refused to let it get her down. Even when she was forced to drop out of school her senior year of high school, she managed to enroll in the GED program. She eventually walked across the stage with her classmates. She never once refused to be a victim of her circumstances.
