I am retired and loving it!! During the past 27 years I have battled with 6 different types of cancer and am still around. Have had 17 surgeries including the cancer, aortic valve replacement, half of my thyroid removed, and a hernia. I still get a monthly chemo shot.
During the same 27 years I have competed in 257 triathlons, including 2 Ironmans, and will continue to do more as long as the body cooperates.
I truly believe that exercise and a positive attitude have helped me survive the health issues. (also a few good doctors)
