After a car accident, and experiencing what he thought was a stroke, Matt Newman was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 39 – an experience he found strength and courage in.
With a wife and three children at home, as well as a cancer partner in his father-in-law facing his own pancreatic cancer diagnosis, Matt immediately went into fight mode. He utilized fitness and exercise to get through his craniotomy recovery, and went on to write “Starting At The Finish Line,” which tells his personal story.
“I’ve earned my legacy and cancer had nothing to do with it,” he says.
