Read about the inspirational role fitness played in Todd Hardys recovery from lung cancer surgery: Fitness and excelling at athletics have always been a source of pride. Growing up I was always an athlete. Ive always worked out and always been in shape. When I asked if I would be able to get back to my current fitness level, I was told, Youll probably get there; youll just need to work at it. Working at it was just fine with Todd. In fact, striving to regain fitness became a motivating factor following surgery, guiding his mental and physical recovery. He was further motivated in his efforts by a concrete goal in the form of an invitation to participate in the #LUNGevity 5K race in Dallas to help raise awareness for lung cancer research. The event would take place five weeks after his surgery. When I was contacted originally, they asked me if I wanted to walk in the 1-mile fun run, Todd says. I said Id participate, but I would do the 5Kand I would run it. Todd determined to run the 5K in 35 minutes. On the day of the race, cheered from the sidelines by family and friends, Todd finished the event in 34:56.

Pancreatic cancer survivor Cassandra Foy shares why she always has a plan, Hector and I always had a plan to celebrate at least 50 years together. We planned to see our children go to college and start their own families. And we have a plan to fulfill our purposes in life, whatever they may be. Our plan isnt finished yet. Since being treated at CTCA, my plan now includes helping others in their journey with cancer. I am glad to be able to encourage others to be advocates for themselves, to never hesitate to ask questions or get a second opinion, or even a third opinion if that is what they want. I also encourage people to be surrounded by loved ones, as I was.
