Head Boy Of Christchurch Boys High Delivers Riveting Speech After Being Given A Week To Live

What would you do if you were told by doctors that you may have just a week to live? A question that has cropped up a few times in our lives I'm sure however it's not ever really a real reality, but Jake Bailey, the head boy at Christchurch Boys’ High School in New Zealand, this horror became a reality when he was diagnosed with Burkitts non-Hodgkinson lymphoma.

Before his diagnosis, Jake wrote a speech for his school's prize giving ceremony and relentlessly ever determined, left his hospital bed to deliver a speech from a wheelchair.A goosebump inducing haka ensues from the rest of the boys at the high school...MUCH RESPECT!!Mate, you are a legend! Keep fighting it! You are one brave human being, thanks for that, personally I draw so much from it.

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently,they're not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
