37 year old Kyle Garlett’s plan is to particpate in this October’s Ford Ironman World Championship. Garlett has overcome every medical obstacle that has been in his way.

His medical issues began in 1989 when he received his first Hodgkin’s disease diagnosis as a high school senior. In 1995, during his third battle with the cancer, doctors ceased his chemotherapy treatment when they discovered it had weakened his heart.

Two years later, Garlett learned he had secondary leukemia as a result of chemotherapy to treat the Hodgkin’s, and three more years of chemotherapy ensued.

And after five years on the waiting list, he received a new heart in 2006.
