Meet Steve: Prostate Cancer Patient and IRONMAN

Steve CooperSteve Cooper is fighting stage IV metastatic prostate cancer at the age of 42. Diagnosed in December 2012, he was given six months to live. Steve's case was ruled inoperable by the VA, prompting him to seek out other options in the private sector. He had a radical prostatectomy in January 2013 and 88 days after surgery, he biked 118 miles to Tucson. He ran a marathon a few weeks later in his U.S. Army uniform.




 
Stories of Caring
 

At 5 1/2 years old, Ethan is really like any other little boy. He thinks playing with friends is the best part of preschool. He knows if dad says "no", to go ask mom. He loves playing video games, playing outside with his friends, playing soccer, watching football games with dad, and going to the park. Ethan also knows he has something called cystic fibrosis. He knows this is why he has to take pills before he eats, why his sinuses are so bad, why he has so many medications and therapies to do, and why he has special doctors.
