Niff AU: A week before graduation Jeff was diagnosed with cancer, hodgkin’s lymphoma to be exact. Jeff’s boyfriend, Nick, was the one who started questioning Jeff’s health. He had been sleeping in basically nothing with nothing covering him, he wasn’t eating much, and he was always complaining about being tired. Jeff told it was just stress over college applications and the warblers’ choreography. It wasn’t until a week after regionals when Jeff collapsed that Nick forced him to go to the hospital.
Dr. Montgomery : Mr. Sterling i thought i told you to bring your Aunt and Uncle with you?
Jeff: Can’t Doc, they’re in New York, so I brought my boyfriend.
Dr. Montgomery: Fine, Well Jeff, I wish you came in sooner.
Jeff: Couldn’t, you know the hectic life of being a Dalton boy, I’m sure Wes could tell you.
Dr. Montgomery: Jeff, would you take this seriously please.
Jeff: Fine, What is it anyways.
Dr. Montgomery: You have Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Jeff: and that is?
Nick: Cancer, Jeff. You have cancer.

“He said, ‘How old are you, Tom?’ I said, ‘I’m 29.’ He said, ‘OK, I want your war face, the face you’ve been doing all day for all these battle scenes, all the hell fury. You’re strong and courageous and you’re 29. Then you see the guns and at that moment, I want you to de-age yourself by 20 years. You’re a 9-year-old at that moment. I don’t want you to do fear, I don’t want fear or horror, I just want to strip away the man and see the boy.’ It was the clearest and purest notes I had ever been given.
