18-year-old Daran Wankum had a dream to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather and become a Marine. But then he started having double vision and received a life-changing diagnose: Cancer and a large tumor on his brain.
The diagnose broke his dream of ever becoming a Marine, or so he thought.
After finding out about Daran’s diagnose, the Marines from the local recruiting office where he had planned his career banded together and stood guard outside his hospital room for a full 24 hours before he underwent surgery.
Daran then went to Washington to attend a ceremony where he was made an honorary Marine, an honor that has only been given to 22 people in the history of the Marine Corps.
