‘Boston Get Your Rear in Gear 5K’ is so excited to have Team TJ on board with us! As if being diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer at the young age of 28 isn’t enough, TJ has taken on the job of inspiring others in his situation by documenting his battle on his blog ‘Beat The Challenge’.
Currently undergoing aggressive Chemo treatment, TJ can still find some humor in it all saying…
The Drugs my infusion nurse Shiela administered in hospital were Oxaliplatin, and Leucovorin, they gave me a boost of 5-FU (Fluorouracil) and then hooked me up with the latest fashion trend. Don’t be surprised if you see a new wave of man purses take over the south end after people see me rocking this new look. Then again…….. it’s the south-end I might be a little late to the party.
TJ, I live in the South End too, and trust me man, you are late to the party! haha! As I’m sure you know, anything goes in the South End.
Anyway, I digress…
TJ, its an honor to have you doing what you do in my city, in my neighborhood. You are an inspiration to all those going through this horrible disease! Keep at it!
