Discover how a medical diagnosis opened doors and created opportunities for living with guest Steve Brown and host Dr. Jo Anne White.
A three sport athlete, Steve Brown made his way to Cabrini University on a soccer scholarship where he earned many honors including team Captain and Most Valuable Player recognition. After several years of playing high caliber soccer post college, Steve traded in his soccer shoes and turned his passions to multisport racing and has never looked back. Since then, Steve has participated in countless triathlons and multisport events of all distances while racing for many philanthropic causes.
In February of 2006, Steve was diagnosed with a chronic form of leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy treatments while still maintaining his fitness level, often running home from his treatments. He quickly reached remission and returned to racing and has aligned himself with organizations such as The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society where he leverages his own cancer experience to help other patients. Brown is an accomplished writer whose work has been featured regularly in PhillyFIT Magazine, HealthFitnessBroadcast.com, Philly Health Watch, TransitionTimes.com, Liberty Sports Magazine and is a former blog writer for Philadelphia’s FOX29. Steve is currently a contributing writer to Movement Sports Magazine.
