Troy was told by doctors that he only had 6 months to live when he was only 16 years old, but he has defied the odds and he's sharing his story with The Doctors.
When he was 14, Troy -- who dreamed of being a basketball player -- was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a bone cancer most commonly found in children and teens. After going through chemotherapy, his cancer returned and his left arm had to be amputated.
After enduring the amputation, he was told the cancer had spread to his lungs and told him to only expect to live for half a year -- that was 10 years ago. Despite his health issues, Troy continued to play basketball and began working out even harder. He now plays on an all-amputee team and manages multiple teams. He even hopes of one day becoming the first amputee professional player.
"If anyone can learn anything from hearing my story, I want them to know all you have to do is listen to yourself and that's the right answer, every time," he says.
He tells us that he currently is living with 9 tumors in his body, but they are stable. Every 6 months, he gets CT and bone scans to check on the tumors.
"I've always said basketball is my chemotherapy," he tells The Doctors explaining that he finds great comfort and joy in the sport. He goes on to say that even if he inspires just one person with his story then he's doing his job.
Check out the video below to find out the surprises we have in store for Troy from the Los Angeles Lakers, the NBA All-Star Game, and basketball great LeBron James.
