Olympian inspires cancer victims

Posted Oct 02 2008 4:23pm
Even though I can't stand the Olympics and would rather paint the rest of my house than to watch the Olympics, there is an Olympic athlete with testicular cancer who still competes. He's not doing this to raise money for cancer - he actually is putting off treatment to compete, despite the fatigue and pain from the growing cancer.
While I don't agree with Eric Shanteau's decision since he's 24 years old and the quicker he gets treatment, the better his chances of survival are, you have to admire what he's doing.
