Seeing Cancer as a Motivation, Not a Destination

Nov 21, 2018, 01:00 PM

This week on the CURE Talks Cancer podcast, we spoke with Andy Steinfeldt, who looks at cancer “as a motivation rather than a destination." After taking up running at age 63, Andy was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few years later in 2013. But he didn’t let it slow him down.

Since his initial diagnosis, Andy has faced a host of other health challenges – as well as a recurrence he just finished radiation treatment for. But despite all this, Andy has completed two full marathons, earned numerous medals in the Senior Games, takes classes at a local college and has even taken up singing to prove that anything is possible – even with cancer.
