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. Don 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 Don's journey with leukemia, he decided he had to give back and make a difference. Since his diagnosis, Don has run 18 marathons (4 internationally), completed a triathlon and a 100-mile bicycle ride, and raised over $100,000 for blood cancer research.
Don decided to write Finish YOUR Race to share the extraordinary lessons and strategies he 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 Don's 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.
