On tonight’s show, Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy we were fortunate to have Living is Winning Director Linda Burns and Andrew “Drew” Johnston, star of this new documentary that follows Drew’s rise from a cancer diagnosis to him competing in an Ironman Triathlon in
This is a great story - Drew is an elite athlete. He stared out as a competitive pro cyclist, but after a series of accidents and concussions, he was forced to put down his bike.
Drew quickly changed gears and found success and a new career as a triathlete. But 2004 brought devastating news for his family, his friends and his future. Drew was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) and his body literally broke down.
But two years later, after taking an oral chemo called Gleevac, and continuing his commitment to a healthy organic lifestyle, rigorous targeted exercise and an extremely positive mental attitude, Drew is in molecular remission.
Today, Drew competes at triathlons and Ironman events throughout the country with remarkable results. Drew’s life story serves as an inspiration to others, to strive to be your best in every aspect of life and to never give up your dreams, no matter how distant they may seem.
