If I am successful on my Appalachian Trail thru hike I will:

1. Come out a stronger person mentally and physically
2. Be able to talk to others in similar situations about what is possible
3. Have removed barriers that I thought were insurmountable
4. Overcome many fears
5. Learn what it feels like to really do something epic
6. Have an experience no person or disease can take from me
7. Know that mentally I will be prepared for anything my tumor can throw at me
8. See the world at its best
9. Know the taste of hard work and the payoff
10. Understand myself better than I thought possible
