About this Episode

Ken Martin was diagnosed with two different types of cancer (Lymphomas: Follicular Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma; Hodgkin’s Lymphoma; and Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma). An avid endurance athlete, Ken (having read research that demonstrated exercise could help during chemotherapy), convinced his physicians to let him bring his stationary bike into the chemo ward to exercise during chemotherapy. 

We chat about how and why Ken decided to do this, along with how it was received by the medical staff.
