Cerrone grew up a city boy and always succeeded in academics, ultimately getting his Masters from NYU. After his first cancer diagnosis, he longed for adventure and to explore the outdoors. Since then, he has found much more fulfillment from pushing himself physically than sitting behind a desk. Since he just beat cancer again this year, Cerrone wants to prove that a gay, black man who has survived cancer twice is more than qualified to complete this kind of training.
