Two-Time Cancer Survivor, Now a Doctor

On the “Inspire” Podcast, Brenda Emrick-Kennedy, President of Emrick Insurance Marketing Group talked about her son, Cullen who has battled cancer twice.

The first successful fight came early, at age two, when Brenda was a young mother. Cullen faced the disease again while he was attending medical school. Not only did he win this second battle, he was also able to graduate six months early! Here’s a photo of him from that time:

Cullen now practices Internal Medicine at SIU School of Medicine in Springfield, Illinois, where he is working toward a fellowship. Here’s a recent photo of him with his husband Huxley, daughter Kennedy, son Beckett and family dog Finley:

The yard sign was a gift from someone honoring the medical staff at the hospital where Cullen works. Considering all that Cullen has overcome in his life, it’s entirely appropriate. Thanks to Brenda for sharing Cullen’s inspiring story with all of us — and best wishes to Cullen and his beautiful family!
