Teen cancer patient wins fans with inspiring projects, messages

GREENWICH -

A teenage cancer patient from Greenwich is using an inspiring message to win fans on YouTube and all over the country.

Steven Sudell, 14, is in hospice for cancer that started in his brain. Sudell's newest project is a channel where he can show off his art and chat with a growing group of fans.

But his work extends beyond that -- his supporters have spread inspiring messages by painting rocks, and Sudell designed socks that raised $15,000 for charity. Those socks were even worn by an NFL player.

Sudell says life has taught him lessons that he wants to share with as many people as possible.

"Keep moving forward, don't think about the bad, think about the positive and you will be living life," says Sudell.

Sudell says he is no longer able to use his legs, but is excited and happy with what he has been able to do from his room.

In about a week, he has received over 700 subscribers and a loyal group of viewers who are checking out his daily clips.
