Guest Bio: Stephen Brown
Stephen BrownSteve Brown grew up in Suburban Philadelphia, making his way to Cabrini College in Radnor, Pennsylvania on a soccer scholarship where he earned many honors including Most Valuable Player recognition.

After several years of playing semi professional soccer, Steve traded in his soccer shoes and turned his passions to multi-sport racing and has never looked back. Since then, Steve has racked up countless triathlons and multisport events of all distances including many marathons and ironman triathlons and many top age group finishes.

In February of 2006, life threw Steve a curve ball when he was diagnosed with leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy while still maintaining his baseline fitness level, often running home from his treatments and quickly reached complete remission. By September of that year, just 7 months after his diagnosis, “RemissionMan” crossed the finish line of yet another iron distance triathlon (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run).

His diagnosis drew him to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s TEAM in TRAINING program where he signed on as a Triathlon Coach to help others reach their dreams while raising funds and awareness for blood cancers.

Steve leverages his own cancer experience by connecting with other patients and their family members as a volunteer mentor with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Imerman Angels patient mentoring program.

Brown has published five books, including Relentless Mettle, My Cancer, My Rules which chronicles his journey with leukemia.
