Edwin Schoo: Marathon runner and go-getter

15-06-2022 | 10:44 My name is Edwin, 56 years old, married to Mirjam and proud to say we have two beautiful daughters. Last year, in May 2021, our lives suddenly changed after I was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. I was quite an avid runner and ran one full marathon, several half marathons, 10-miles, 10 km and multiple smaller runs per year. I couldn't imagine a life without running. It felt like an escape to clear my head after a busy day of work. In January 2021, my groin started to ache. Strangely enough, the pain did not go away. Via the family doctor, physio, sports doctor and chiropractor I even ended up in the hospital where, after an MRI scan, it was clear that it wasn't just a running injury. The hard conclusion turned out to be that I had bone marrow cancer with a malignant tumor in my upper right leg bone. I had to be irradiated immediately to inhibit/stop the growth of the tumor and prevent spontaneous bone fracture, which automatically meant that I could no longer run, jump, climb stairs and had to use crutches immediately. In total, I have completed 25 radiation treatments and I'm still receiving blood checks every 3 months to keep the cancer under control. The diagnosis was given to me one year ago and the bone is now carefully recovering. And: I have the green light to start dribbling again! However, the cancer will never go away. It remains dormant in my body and could resurface at any time, but with the support of my family, lots of good friends and a healthy dose of optimism, we will fight it.
