I received this inspirational video of Kyle Burr, a Penn undergrad and thought it was worth sharing.
"On Oct. 23, 2007, Kyle Burr, a senior at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, was diagnosed with testicular cancer while studying abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland. He had an operation to remove the tumor there, and returned to New York where he underwent three cycles of chemotherapy. On Feb. 11 of 2008, Kyle, who is majoring in International Relations and African Studies, officially entered remission.
Kyle decided to run the marathon as a testament to the fact that it's possible to overcome just about anything, and that anything is possible if you dedicate yourself to it. He says he isn't running just for himself, but also in support of cancer patients, survivors and victims everywhere.
When asked why he decided to run the marathon, Kyle responded, 'The challenge itself. What's harder than running a marathon? I want to be able to say I did that, and in less than a year since I even began receiving cancer treatment. I mean there's really no better way of proving that absolutely nothing can hold me back.'"New to DT? 14 easy suggestions to get started!
