Daniel Martinez says that when it’s all said and done, he wants to be remembered as a good guy and a good nurse. He is on his way to being both.
Martinez, 22, a nursing student at Luna Community College, has accomplished quite a bit at his young age, but none bigger than overcoming testicular cancer.
Perhaps one of the most decorated athletes in Robertson High history with 12 state championships combined in wrestling and track, Martinez was shocked to learn that he had testicular cancer. At the time he was wrestling for Doug Moses and Highlands University.
