Voices Against Brain Cancer Commends Brain Cancer Patient for Competing in Ironman Competitions
Date:7/26/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 26, 2013

On July 26, Voices Against Brain Cancer, an organization dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy, commends brain cancer patient, Kristin McQueen, for continuing to compete in Ironman triathlons despite illness.

According to a July 23, 2013 article published on ChicagoTribune.com, entitled, “Brain cancer doesn’t stop Ironman triathlete,” 34 year-old Kristin McQueen was diagnosed with brain cancer ten years ago and has undergone three brain surgeries. In that same time period, she has completed seventeen marathons and nine Ironman triathlons.

McQueen has entered most of these competitions with limited training due to her medical treatments. However, she relies on them as relief to her battle with brain cancer.

“Ironman gives me an outlet for everything that’s happening in my life,” McQueen tells the Chicago Tribune. “Training for me is a very peaceful time where I can pray and work things out.”

McQueen competes next in the Ironman Wisconsin competition on September 8, 2013. The rest of her Fall has been cleared to make time for training for next year. However, her medical condition has left some aspects of her training particularly difficult.

“One of my surgeries damaged the nerve that controls balance, so I needed to learn how to bike again,” she says. “I think it’s going to be a permanent thing now, where I’m always going to be a little wobbly on the bike. I just have to make do and adjust.”

Michael Klipper, Chairman of Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC), an organization dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy, commends McQueen on remaining positive despite her illness. “There are many times when people will take their brain cancer diagnosis as an automatic death sen
