VIDEO: South Dakota Trooper Works Highway While Taking Leukemia Treatments

"I wasn't expecting it. I'm in my 20s, I was a marine, I'm in pretty good shape...you just don't hear about it happening to people this age, you know, being diagnosed with cancer," South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper Douglas Roderick said.

One year after the former marine joined the South Dakota Highway Patrol, a diagnosis of chronic leukemia rocked his future.

But now a new long term treatment plan is helping the Madison trooper get back on the road, KSFY TV reports.

"I like what I do. I get to meet the public, I like to give back and help the community out as much as I can," Roderick said.

Thanks to you Trooper Roderick for serving in both capacities. Prayers for your complete recovery from this dreaded killer.
