When Dave Cantin was told of his diagnosis, he was in shock, but also in a state of confusion when his doctor described it as "hitting the lotto". What his doctor had meant was that his form of cancer (CML) was treatable by cancer pills and he wouldn't even have to miss more than a month of work. Cantin was back to work at his car dealership in a week, and ran the Boston Marathon a few weeks after that.
