Leukemia

As 29, Heather Walters was shocked to learn she was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, or ALL, in July 1998. Healther sought treatment at the Fox Chase Cancer Center-Temple University Hospital Bone Marrow Transplant program, where she underwent chemotherapy followed by a bone marrow transplant. After a successful surgery, Healther returned to working full-time as a physician assistant and returned to running. "I feel like my old self again," she said. "I continue to run for exercise, fun, and competition, though I do trail races much more than road races. I enjoy spending any free time outside, including running, hiking, biking, skiing, and even walking with our dogs."
