19 year old basketball player with terminal cancer
Lauren Hill was an NCAA basketball player from Mount St. Joseph University. All that Lauren wanted to do in her life was to play in a real basketball game. When she was 19 years old her wish came true. But when she was 17 years old she was diagnosed with DIPG. Since she was still focused on her goal to play in a basketball game she just pushed through everything and worked harder than ever.
I believe Lauren Hill is a risk taker because she trained hard to reach her goal, even though she had trouble with the paths she had already known. For example she was right handed but she had to learn to use her left hand because the tumor weakened her right.
Another reason why I think Lauren Hill is a risk taker is because she knew that she could die at any moment. Even though she had knowledge of her condition she still pursued her dream without any hesitation.
One last reason of why I think Lauren is a risk taker is because she never gave up when there were obstacles in her way.
