Emmanuel, who was diagnosed at St. Jude with retinoblastoma, a cancerous tumor of the eye, is living life to the fullest and pursuing his dreams. Emmanuel overcame losing his left eye to play on his high school football team. After graduating from high school in the spring, he was off to college this past fall on a football scholarship in South Dakota. He credits God with helping him on this journey:
“He's guided me through this path for a very long time. I know because of Him, I’m able to play football with one eye. …God sent those caregivers into St. Jude and into my life to help me.”
