In 2008, James McCabe, a man, was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer. He had a mastectomy, went through 4 rounds of chemotherapy and underwent 30 rounds of radiation. Then, in 2012, his physicians found another lump under his arm, which also turned out to be malignant. To help beat cancer, he suggests finding your passion and really working at it. He says: “for me, it was running.” “If the cancer comes back, I will be physically and mentally conditioned to battle it again.” Watch the video to hear how he beat cancer, runs with his oncologist and is preparing for the Boston Marathon.
