    HI all,

    I am Freddy and I turned 17 on new years day. After reading this forum to help me setup my first website back in 2014, I thought I would create an account and hopefully take some great knowledge from some and give back to others (my Mom says this is what life is about) so who am I to disagree?

    My "boy comes man" moment occurred back in the fall of 2011 when my father passed away from lung cancer, he was everything to me and a very successful Internet marketer - he taught me how to create websites, write engaging articles and even how SEO works from a very young age.

    I remember the summer months before he left us, he was his normal self, playing soccer and baseball with me during my school break and then seeing him quickly deteriorate (he used to tell me he was turning into Golum) probably to help me through it and I can see the funny side now. The hardest time of the year is fall, every tree wilting away just reminds me how my hero did exactly the same thing.

    After my father passed in 2011, It was really difficult for me and my mom, we struggled through knowing he was keeping his eye on us. Then in 2014 I decided to start a website in his name - about alternative cancer treatments. It became quite a successful site, so I decided to donate it to a local cancer charity and I am told it is helping change lives, even to this day. Forget about money making you the happiest you can be (of course it helps) but nothing puts a smile on my face better than knowing I helped someone going though what my father did.

    I thought I would share this with you guys, and hopefully we can become online friends as I am now here to help make some money for my college funds and with heart and determination - anyone can - even a boy.

    Thank you guys. I really appreciate your kind words. I read on this forum quite a lot, without signing up, and the main reason was that was there are so many great members, I just hope I can add to this great community.
