Isobel Stout: My Challenge – 2UPTT

Hi fellow team CP mIsobel stoutembers! I’m Isobel Stout and I’ve joined the CP team to help me help others by participating in the event 2UPTT, a team of two, time trialling up Coronet Peak in March next year. ┬áTake a look www.2uptt.co.nz<http://www.2uptt.co.nz>

There’s big money for the winning pros but I am just an ‘everyday hero’.

I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer last year, that means it has already spread into my lymph nodes. The surgery was followed by 6 months of chemo (yup lost every hair and taste bud) and then 5 weeks of daily radiotherapy. That ended nearly 3 months ago now and along came this event.

I want to get my fitness and strength back, chemo is rough, the surgery has left with me with some tightness and lymphoedema. The Trust has helped me get a start on rehab through the Next Steps program, see http://www.pincandsteel.com/programs/our-programs/next-steps/ CP and Apollo Power Yoga will be taking over so the funds I raise will help more women and men get back into exercise after cancer treatment.

Follow me on my page 2uptt.everydayhero.com/nz/isobel and I’ll be keeping you updated here too.
