Linn-Mar High School - Marion, Iowa

Greve beats cancer to swim for Lions

A young man with a scientific mind, Linn-Mar senior Calvin Greve measures his life in millimeters and fractions of seconds.

As a swimmer, every fractional time drop gets him that much closer to the ultimate prize of the state swim meet for his Lions team. And in the even bigger race, success in the pool shows he’s beating the cancer that could have killed or paralyzed him just two years ago.

Miraculously detected, a 40-millimeter tumor (about the size of a ping-pong ball) was growing under his inner ear and pushing against his brain stem. It was discovered only after a routine school physical in the spring of his sophomore year showed what he already knew - that he was losing the hearing in his left ear.

“I really didn't notice it. I’d just gotten used to it,” the 17-year-old says matter-of-factly in the manner that befits a student scholar who already has a number of college credits under his belt. “But I felt perfectly fine.”
