Midland Daily News shared the inspiring story of soldier Jason Martin, from Chesapeake, VA, who was diagnosed with cancer, requiring surgery and treatment that drastically altered his career path. Jason had a tumor in his shoulder and doctors told him that he would most likely lose his arm. While they were able to save the arm, surgery rendered it virtually useless. In the article, Jason explains the impact this had on his career:
“‘What I wanted to do with the rest of my life, honestly, was my career,’ he said. ‘I was going to school for criminal justice and homeland security.’ If his military career didn’t pan out, he would become a police officer. ‘This took both my careers from me.’”
