Derek Fitzgerald: Surviving Cancer & Beginning Again
DEREK FITZGERALD: EP 2
Surviving Cancer & Beginning Again
Derek Fitzgerald is a Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer Survivor and Heart Transplant Recipient, a six-time IRONMAN, and a husband and Father.
Derek is the first person to survive cancer and a heart transplant to finish a full-distance IRONMAN. Derek takes you on his remarkable journey from cancer diagnosis to surviving seven years of heart failure and then finally receiving a life-saving heart transplant.
For Derek, victory is defined by getting to a start line and beginning again. In 2013, Derek started the Recycledman Foundation to help others going through similar circumstances. Through Derek's story, you can draw parallels between beginning again and what it takes to face any new challenge. Pushing forward and cheering yourself on when no one is around often means seeing victory in the tiniest of efforts.
