NO WORSE ENEMY
by Lucas Lattrell
It’s been said that there is “No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy” than a U.S. Marine. However, for those diagnosed with cancer, there is no worse enemy they must face than the disease that is trying to take their life. What happens when a 21-year-old Marine gets diagnosed with cancer on the cusp of realizing his lifelong dream? The No Worse Enemy podcast follows David Harris on his battle through cancer, and his battle to keep his dream of becoming a Marine Officer alive.
