You look horrible.”   

As an act of concern, two people told Don that exact phrase in one day.  

Within the next week Don was diagnosed with leukemia and had already begun receiving his first chemo treatment.

The former golf course superintendent of one of America’s best golf courses- the Colonial Country Club, Fort Worth, Texas -- discusses his journey leading to working his dream job and the difficult years which followed.

Don is on the other side of 5 rounds of chemo; 63 days in the hospital; and 150 consecutive days of doctor’s visits.  

He is:

  • A survivor; 
  • Author of “Finish Your Race”; 
  • A motivational speaker;  
  • A business owner; and
  • A major volunteer for NTX Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Oh – did we mention he has since completed 22 marathons.  

You will have no excuses once you listen to this episode; but you will be very encouraged.
