GAPLAND - Susannah Willems is the picture of health. She has a full head of wavy blond hair and is, her mom says, at almost 4 feet, 8 inches, the tallest student in the third grade at Pleasant Valley Elementary School. "It's amazing. Thank God. If you look at her, you'd never know all she's been through," her mother Christina Willems said. Until a year and a half ago, Susannah was battling for her life. The enemy was the acute lymphoblast leukemia, diagnosed in 2001. The cancer attacked her bone marrow, leaving her unable to fight infection.

Digges and his family struggled through a year of this horrible diagnosis, hoping for the best but expecting the worst. "Then one day we met with the doctor and he said the leukemia just went away," Digges said. "He said he couldn't figure out where the disease went. " It was then that Digges said he first knew that God had a plan for his life.

Aaron Miller has three cherished possessions from his junior year at North Hagerstown High School, including a varsity letter for football. He never played a down or snapped on a helmet as the Hubs rolled to a 9-2 record, including a berth in the Maryland Class 3A playoffs. But he was a driving force behind the team's success. During the first week of practice in mid-August, the offensive and defensive lineman was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and given little chance of survival.  But through a combination of positive thoughts, prayers, treatment, great genetics, a little luck and the drive to play football again, he not only remained involved with the Hubs, but inspired his teammates and an entire school.
