LCDR Woods is active duty in the Navy, with 25 years of service and nine deployments. During his last tour, he learned his 4-year-old son was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma. After undergoing multiple surgeries, radiation treatments and three months of high-dose chemotherapy, his son is cancer free. For his treatment plan, he must go to St. Jude every three months for MRIs.
