We recently shared this extremely inspiring video on our Facebook page about Steve “Radioactive Ironman” Cooper, a board member of ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer. It’s too good not to share again on our blog. The video was originally posted by ZERO.
Steve Cooper was diagnosed with prostate cancer in December 2012 with a PSA score of 50 and a Gleason 4/4 at all 12 biopsy sites. Steve was only given six months to live. His case was ruled inoperable by the VA. This bleak diagnosis prompted him to seek out other options in the private sector. He had a radical prostatectomy in January of 2013. Steve rode 118 miles on his bicycle to Tucson only 88 days after surgery. Just a few weeks later, he ran a marathon in his army uniform.
Steve’s “never quit” attitude can be linked back to his lengthy career in the U.S. Army. Today, he is the CEO of Today’s Campus media company. He has also started a program called VeteransBootCamp.com. This program helps veterans secure careers at no cost to them. We salute Steve Cooper for his never quit attitude!
