Cancer Curer | Ultra Athlete | MS Warrior
“I like to think of myself as a Badass because I refuse to take any limitations seriously. I went to medical school overseas, and as such I was told I would struggle to get a competitive residency in radiation oncology, but I did it. When I was diagnosed with MS I was told I might not be able to compete in ultramarathons anymore; it took a while, but I did it again. I was told my MS might prevent me from getting hired permanently, but I had a zillion offers. I had to work harder than many to achieve my goals, but it was worth it.
“My advice to anyone struggling is to be true to yourself and your values. Don’t let anyone else define you or tell you how to live your life. There is no greater pain than being boxed in by someone else’s opinions of you.”
