When she was just 19, Camille Chabot was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin’s lymphoma, right before her sophomore year at Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, California. But she didn’t let it stop her from staying on track with her education.

“Honestly, it was always my goal to finish with the people that I started with in 2013,” the proud grad explains. “I wanted to be able to say, ‘I had cancer twice, and I graduated in four years — with a minor in French.’”
