Runner Stories

Katie Fiel

I run to keep myself strong and healthy…in my bones, my body and my spirit! I am inspired daily by the cancer patients that I treat at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. They remind me that we all to often take our health for granted and complain about the little things. Having been diagnosed with Melanoma this past year, I suddenly realized how quickly your circumstances can change. 4 surgeries and 12 biopsies later I am cancer free and bouncing back to a healthier lifestyle. With each stride I remind myself just how strong I am and how thankful I am to have the body I do that allows me to be active.

Looking forward to another year!
