Humans of Summerville K.C. Powell

Lessie Day, Freshman

"My original major was radiation therapy, but I changed it within a month of coming here because my grandmother got really sick. She has bronchiectasis, which is... where a bacteria grows in your lungs that causes you to have pneumonia... And she gets respiratory treatments all the time... It's very—she's on oxygen 24/7, and it's just hard for her to breathe. Hopefully, if she's still alive, my plan is to help her when I graduate—or anyone who is struggling because bronchiectasis is a rare disease. So, that is why." —Lessie Day, Respiratory Therapy Major
