Released 3/7/16 at The Oklahoman | Tags:
In early 2014, as his Oklahoma Air National Guard unit ramped up for a Middle East deployment, Senior Airman Jesse Daniels noticed he wasn't feeling well. He got tired after just a few minutes on his feet. He couldn't walk more than 20 feet without getting winded and feeling his heart racing. He never made it to the Middle East. But Daniels still found himself in a fight for his life. Eventually Daniels, now 27, would be diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer.
