Brandon Clayton

Brandon Clayton survived sarcoma three years ago. He graduated in 2007 from Texas A&M with a degree in Environmental Studies. In his own words:  

"When I was first diagnosed with cancer, I thought I had my life mapped out for me.  I just finished a very successful 4 years of high school and was ready to take on the challenge of college.  I couldn't wait for the opportunity to move away from home and grow as a person.  My parents were spending the summer in Yellowstone National Park.  They both had summer jobs there.  I was excited to spend my summer working 3 jobs and visiting with my friends.  I discovered the tumor on my arm while watching TV.  My uncle just died from cancer 2 years ago.  My grandmother is also a breast cancer survivor.  Our family is no stranger to the word CANCER.  After a biopsy, it was found that I had Sarcoma and it was a high grade. I had surgery.  I was pretty much in shock during the first few weeks.  I started thinking about things that I haven't thought about in a long time or maybe not even at all.  I started questioning my relationship with God and started praying quite a bit.  My mother had a motto that she told anyone who called or came to visit, 'Don't come or call if you don't have positive thoughts.'  I truly believe that positive attitude is what got me through this tough time in my life.   I wake up everyday and thank the Lord for my life and for my family.  I am feeling great now, and can't wait for the next motorcycle racing season to begin again!. My family is not financially well set and I have to have a part time job to be able to attend college. I am very fortunate to have Cancer Survivors' Fund on my side for giving me financial support and counseling."
