Dutch Cancer Survivor Wins Gold!

Wow. The Olympics are inspiring…and it just got even more inspiring with the men's marathon swimming event:

Dutchman Maarten van der Weijden, given only a slim chance of survival when diagnosed with leukemia seven years ago, won the 10km swim, one of the most testing Olympic events. A stem cell transplant and chemotherapy saved van der Weijden's life. "That makes it extra special," he said. "It proves that even after such an illness you can win gold."
