Wielgus began to recover from his surgery and chemotherapy treatments only to end up back in the hospital a year later when he developed peripheral neuropathy—permanent damage to the nerves in his hands and feet. He was inspired by his swimming family and wife, Nancy, to continue the active lifestyle he enjoyed prior to surgery despite this new challenge. Soon, he was able to resume working at USA Swimming and as CEO of the USA Swimming Foundation, which provides financial support for swimmers of all ages and advocates for water safety. Wielgus traveled to Beijing to encourage the 2008 U.S. Swim Team and continues traveling 25 weekends a year as part of his role with USA Swimming.

"My illness has made me much more patient, tolerant and understanding and I now look for ways to reach out and support others who are confronting physical and emotional challenges," said Wielgus. Wielgus, now 60, resides in Colorado Springs, CO and has four children.

Though no longer on active duty, he has been in uniform for more than 40 years, serving as the Senior Army Instructor of
