Survivor, Acute Myeloid Leukemia
John says his AML diagnosis, as troubling and bleak as it was, saved his life. The events of 9-11 saw the loss of close to an entire team of colleagues. Following that day and through his treatment, succumbing to this disease was not in his future plan. With a wife and two young sons, a strong support system, and a competitive sports mindset, John powered through the challenges to get back to living and to becoming an advocate for good. John is an inspiration on and off the field – as a coach to his two sons and a voracious advocate and fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
