For U.S veteran Blake, facing adverse situations was nothing new. After doing 2 tours in Afghanistan and Korea, respectively, it wasn’t until Blake’s last tour in Iraq that the MS symptoms started to develop.
After returning to Canada, Blake went through the steps to find out what was afflicting his body. Diagnosed with MS, Blake was now faced with a new set of challenges in life, even more so when he was diagnosed with cancer shortly after his MS diagnosis.
Through surgery and treatments, Blake beat the cancer. Turning his attention to the MS, Blake began getting stem cell transplants to help with his symptoms. Now almost a year later after the transplants, Blake is getting ready to run the PEI marathon on October 14th.
