Ryan Dieringer loves to win.
Dieringer, as a high school student, was a tremendously driven athlete.
He lettered in multiple sports. “As an athlete and a competitor in general I’ve always wanted to win. I don’t like losing.”
Dieringer, as a high school student, was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma.
Learning he had cancer and finding out those test results to him meant “I had a game plan. I knew how to attack it and like everything else in my life I wanted to win,” he said. “The entire journey makes me appreciate what really matters to me – family, friends and happiness. You can say anything you want about success but the little things in life are what really matter.”
Surviving cancer does not define Dieringer as a person. He’d rather be known as “Ryan the sports enthusiast, Ryan the student, rather than the cancer survivor.”
