Barbara Jordan - June 2016
Retired scaffolder and father of three, Tom Whitfield, was devastated upon learning of his cancer diagnosis last year. He had major surgery in March of last year and took a year off of running to recuperate. However, thanks to his strength and determination, he's been given the okay to continue with all of his sports.
Whitfield felt his ability to be active is what keeps him going and doctors and nurses told him that the fact he was so fit likely helped his recovery along. "I'd advise anyone diagnosed with cancer to think positive" Whitfield recommends. After running his most recent marathon with his daughter and granddaughter, at age 69, Whitfield has now clocked 94 half marathons and 16 full marathons!
