Huntsman Hometown Heroes
Guest post by Tyler Ellis, PT, DPT from the Sandy, Utah clinic.
I recently joined a group called the Huntsman Hometown Heroes. We run every week, training for races to support individuals with cancer. Its a really awesome group and we often dedicate our runs to specific people we know affected by cancer. It really makes it more meaningful. Kendra and I are trying to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute to help improve treatment and prevention. Click here to learn more.
As a Physical Therapist I often see individuals in my clinic who have been affected by cancer. Many of them have lost full function of their muscles and joints due to the effects of treatment as well as the cancer itself. My job is to help them regain as much function as possible. It saddens me when I see them continue to have difficulty in their everyday life as they are unable to reach the level of activity they once enjoyed.
As I run for the Huntsman Hometown Heroes, I think about these individuals and how the Huntsman Cancer Institute is paving the way to improve cancer prevention and treatment, and finding more effective medications to lessen the devastating side effects of cancer.
Those interested in helping me raising money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute can do so at the above link. Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer. Thank you so much!
