2017 Graduation Celebration
Thank you to all who came to celebrate our 2017 graduates!
Thursday, May 11 from 7pm – 9pm
Catalyst Ranch | 656 West Randolph Street | Chicago
This year, we were proud to welcome keynote speaker, D. Anthony Evans.
D. Anthony Evans’ outward appearance does not suggest that he suffered from aggressive cancer. At age 6, D. was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a rare inherited condition where tumors grow on nerve tissue. He has had 10 surgeries, 9 were 9 hour-long operations and approximately 350 tumors removed to date. D. serves as an Ambassador Constituent Team Lead for the American Cancer Society, inspirational speaker, a cancer thriver and awareness advocate, an author, a strength coach, and an at-risk youth mentor.
D. Anthony Evans leads his life by example, not allowing his adversity to define him. There is no question that adversity will occur – it’s how you handle it that shapes the person you will become.
