Shane Leonard, a talented young man with his whole life ahead of him, did not let cancer create despair. Instead, Shane looked for opportunities in his new cancer hospital surroundings to inspire his future. At 17, cancer was found in his salivary gland. After surgery, he came to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for follow-up proton radiation treatment. In Shane's spare time, he would study quantum mechanics lectures and became friends with the senior medical physicist of the proton center. He now hopes to use his passion for physics and engineering to improve the lives of others. Coming to MD Anderson, for Shane, was truly a high point in his life.
