Ed's Story

  • Why I Chose a Healthy Lifestyle

    "I sat down with myself and said, 'I went through cancer, and now I'm going to let my diet take me down?'" 

  • Diagnosed with lymphoma while still in college, Ed successfully completed treatment and is now in his early 30s with a wife and young daughter. When a routine physical exam revealed high cholesterol and a possible heart problem, Ed embarked on a diet and exercise program that led to him taking on a challenge he'd never expected: his first marathon.
