Things I love: I am a leukemia survivor, so I love life & all that goes with it

Don Armstrong was diagnosed with leukemia, a blood cancer that threatened to end his life, in 2005. He endured five rounds of chemo in eight months, culminating in a successful stem cell transplant on May 12, 2006.

This was his new “birthday” and his second chance at life.

This journey was filled with uncertainty as well as life lessons and huge victories that changed almost every aspect of his life.

He discovered that adversity affects us all, but it doesn’t define us — it’s the way we react that determines and changes the outcome.

Well into his journey with leukemia, he decided he had to give back and make a difference. Since his diagnosis, he has run 22 marathons (4 internationally), completed two triathlons, a 100-mile bicycle ride, an endurance hike in Moab, Utah while raising over $200,000 for blood cancer research.

He decided to write Finish YOUR Race to share the extraordinary lessons and strategies learned while his life was on the line.

The strategies he discovered aren’t just for cancer patients — everyone can use them to empower their lives.

When you read this uplifting memoir, you will be captivated by his story, inspired by his determination and encouraged by his example. You’ll learn that it’s possible to transcend even the most challenging circumstances, find your life purpose and live it with passion in the process.
