Kentwood Teenager Beats His Cancer In Every Sense Of The Word


January 24, 2020

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — Since May 2019, Henry Dai has been in the fight of his life. It started with a bad cold and grew into the realization that he had lymphoma.

“It’s a very challenging tumor because it can develop very, very quickly,” said Dr. James Fahner. “It can threaten the function and structure of nearby organs and it comes on so dramatically and so suddenly that sometimes the kids are very critically ill at their initial diagnosis.”

The East Kentwood High School student fought hard against cancer and recently beat it. On Friday, Jan. 24, Dai got to stick it to cancer in a big way.
