"We are so proud of who he has become in spite of his rough beginning," Schuh's mother Colleen said. "He is living life to its fullest and healthy."

Three-sport athlete Peter Schuh is a 4.0 student at Eisenhower Middle School in Wykoff, New Jersey.

He plays football, lacrosse and basketball. But Schuh's tenacious behavior extends beyond the playing field and classroom. It knows no bounds.

Schuh helped raise more than $4,600 for Payton Sargenti, a local girl who had cancer but was declared free of the disease a few weeks ago.
