The photo above shows two different sides to one very remarkable boy. On the left we see Noah, a 4-year-old who has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Given the rareness and severity of the disease, the doctors have told Noah's parents he has a 50 percent chance of surviving. On the right we see Noah, a 7-year-old who has beaten cancer thanks to countless chemotherapy treatments and a bone marrow transplant. Noah is just one of the survivors featured in the University of Mississippi Health Care's "My Life Is Proof" campaign, which shines a light on the hospital's patients who have battled and beaten cancer. Organizers hope that as the youngest patient featured in the campaign, Noah serves as a reminder that even the smallest person has the strength to beat such a powerful disease.
