Serving Up Survivorship.

At just two years old, Harrison was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma,   underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his liver then received chemotherapy as a precautionary measure. Now 28 years old and cancer free, Harrison became an Adventure Athlete to increase his endurance and improve his overall fitness. A lifelong tennis player, he competed on the SUNY Purchase tennis team for two years. His coach at the time described him as “the hardest worker on the team.”

He graduated from SUNY Purchase in 2013. For the past five years, he has worked as a tennis pro at clubs near his home. Next spring, he will complete his masters in education at Manhattanville College en route to fulfilling his dream of teaching history to middle schoolers and coaching tennis and other sports.

“The (Adventure Project) has been great for my life,” said Harrison. “The personal training sessions have helped me tremendously as well as the nutritional sessions with Paula Meyer. I can’t express enough how grateful I am. …I believe it will continue to flourish and help others.”
