The Sydney Morning Herald recently shared the inspiring story of cancer survivor and personal trainer Andy Zagami, who said that work helped him through his cancer journey. He explains how his work helped him get through treatment, and how he is now drawing upon his cancer experience to improve his training:
"Continuing to work also helped him cope, he says. Even when cleared of cancer after surgery to remove part of his lung and then told one month later tumours had grown back and would require further treatment, he continued to hold on to his work. 'There were some days I'd come out of hospital at 7am and I'd be training clients at 8:30am ... they all thought I was nuts but I just needed to do it.' Now aged 28, Zagami is cancer-free and, career-wise, he's managed to find a silver lining. The resilience he drew on during the ordeal is something that motivates and inspires many existing clients and attracts new clients."
