Brian Fugere, who has synovial sarcoma of the lung, has run a marathon with his IV pole during chemo. I think this one just about takes the cake on the inspirational scale doesn’t it? Sure it took him over 7 hours but since this marathon, he has also done an ultimate marathon, 100 miles, in less than 24 hours! Plus he has raised tons of money for cancer research.
If you haven’t seen this very inspirational story yet, check it out here on CNN. I like the reference to LiveStrong and the idea of keeping moving no matter what. You don’t have to take it lying down. Brian Fugere is a perfect example of that.
