Summary, etc.:
Kyle Garlett hated losing more than anything. He knew early on that four diagnoses of cancer could not match his spirit of competition. His appetite for victory and success and his love of life pushed him past his health hurdles including a bone marrow transplant, hip replacement, and a heart transplant and into the greatest challenge of his life: the Ironman Triathlon World Championship. Kyle tells his amazing life story, beginning with his diagnosis of lymphoma and continuing through years of chemotherapy that destroyed his joints and weakened his heart, leading up to his journey to the Ironman Triathlon, in which he competed not once but twice. His miraculous recovery and athleticism are recounted, along with his becoming an Olympic torchbearer, a Leukemia and Lymphoma Society spokesperson, and a motivational speaker.
