In this episode, Risa August shares her inspiring story of overcoming a life-altering brain tumor diagnosis. Despite being an accomplished athlete with a healthy lifestyle, Risa experienced unexplained symptoms that doctors dismissed until an MRI finally revealed a large brain tumor on her pituitary gland. After brain surgery and radiation treatment, Risa had to redefine her identity and focus on what was possible. With determination, she embarked on a cycling journey from Canada to Mexico, chronicled in her book "The Road Unpaved, Border to Border with a Brain Tumor and a Bike. " Risa's resilience and mindset shift to embrace her new normal, rather than dwell on limitations, allowed her to accomplish remarkable feats. Her story encourages others to live life fully, be open to possibilities, and ask "What can I do now?" to reach their goals and dreams despite challenges.
