Sunday Boston Herald: Don’t tell this athlete/author/survivor he ‘Can’t’

One leg. One lung. No problem.

That is the mantra by which 53-year-old Newton endurance athlete and entrepreneur Jothy Rosenberg lives. He is a man who lost a leg and part of one lung to cancer by the time he was 19, but refused to let that define him.

“The only way to survive when you have had a condition like this is not just to survive, but to go beyond it,” said Rosenberg, who has written a memoir titled “Who Says I Can’t” chronicling his bout with cancer and disdain for the word “considering” - as in “you are a good skier, considering.”
