I got stronger every week. I got noticeably stronger.

When you’re working out, you actually feel like you have some kind of control. [Finding out I had cancer] was scary. It gave me a”gut check.” No matter what you can do, even if it’s just stretching, even if it’s just getting here, you have to do it. I got stronger every week. I got noticeably stronger. And just feeling yourself getting stronger, even while you’re going through chemotherapy—how can you do anything else but that? I think it kept me from going insane, because when you think about what’s going on in your body, and what you don’t know, and what they tell you—the doctors and the statistics and the failures and the successes, it really helped me focus on getting better without thinking about all the bad stuff. I focused on the positive.
