Jake Bailey is 18 years old, and just about to graduate high school. Then, he got some terrible news: He had cancer, and he only had about three weeks to live. He was supposed to give a speech to his graduating class, but everyone thought he’d be too weak to do it. However, Bailey came to give the speech in a wheelchair, and his words were incredibly powerful: > A week before I was due to deliver this speech tonight they said, ‘You’ve got cancer’. They said ‘if you don’t get any treatment within the next three weeks you’re going to die’. Then they told me I wouldn’t be here to deliver this speech. It’s tough stuff to hear, but worth the listen. See Bailey’s incredible powerful speech in its entirety below — and make sure to watch the haka his classmates perform when he’s finished.
