Hi guys,
two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and now I defeat it. I was wondering is this something I should mention on my college essay. Also explain on why I had to drop like 6 classes while I was attending community college. And to explain how that impacted me?

    You can write about it, but talk about the positive way you handled it and who you are now. It's a good idea to have your guidance counselor disucss this in his/her Letter of Rec.
