I HAD to Graduate

Dr. Dominic Gentile ('21)
Eight months of chemotherapy. Eight months living in a hotel. An invasive total hip arthroplasty to remove a tumor and save his leg. A month of radiation treatments. That was what Dominic Gentile endured while undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with metastatic Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Despite all that he was going through, Gentile was committed to graduate. It’s a goal he has realized. “I HAD to graduate,” he said. “I had worked so hard for so long and nothing, not even cancer was going to stand in my way.”
