Incurable to others
an ironman to us
Diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in March of 2004. Kathy was told by four other institutions that her form of Lymphoma was incurable and had two years to live.
Our positioning on Kathy was the polar opposite of other institutions. She went through numerous clinical trials followed by a Bone Marrow Transplant that saved her life.
Even during treatment, Kathy placed in two Ironman competitions and biked an average of 20 miles daily.
Kathy is now 5 years post-transplant and living an active lifestyle, still running and biking competitively.
“The only thing I want to look up to me is cancer. I want cancer to look up to me because we beat it.” — Kathy
