She’s 33 and has beaten cancer twice already. Candice Stinnett was diagnosed at age 21 with lymphoma. She underwent chemotherapy and two blood marrow transplants to become cancer-free. Determined to regain her health, Candice changed her lifestyle and became a runner, completing marathons with Leukemia Society’s Team-in-Training program.

Jim Newsome — “Coach Jim” — is 76 and just celebrated his first year cancer-free, beating pancreatic cancer. He’s called coach because he’s run 25 marathons himself and helped start the Leukemia Society Marathon Team-in-Training program in Fort Worth where he coached people training to run a marathon. Now he walks 20-25 miles weekly as part of his exercise routine. He wants people to know ‘you can beat pancreatic cancer.’

On Tuesday, June 4, Candice and Jim, along with other cancer survivors celebrated “Give Cancer the Boot” at Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center – Fort Worth, 1400 8th Avenue, Fort Worth 76104. The event was part of National Cancer Survivors’ Day, held June 2.
