When Evan Meade shakes your hand and smiles, you see the very picture of a strong, healthy American teenager. Then he shows you photos from a little over a year ago. A frail shadow of a boy lies in a bed. 140 pounds. No eyebrows. Translucent skin. Leukemia. It is impossible to believe this is the same person. “They say I probably shouldn’t have made it,” Evan confides. But today, he is cancer free! “I don’t think ‘thank you’ is near enough,” Evan says, struggling for words. He says he owes his life to God and his doctors. “They are the reason I’m still here today.”
