In June 2015 at age 36, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
I underwent a full intensity alogenic stem cell transplant and six months later had a relapse. I told the doctors to not tell me the revised prognosis and focused on getting well.
I have since discovered my prognosis was considered terminal with just six months to live.
Whilst having my stem cell transplant, I had a vision to complete an Ironman.
Six years later, whilst still in the grapples of my healing journey I feel well enough that I am going to realise this dream in August 2022 by completing the Ireland Iron Man.
