Joel Stetler is a husband and father of 3 and teaches 3rd grade in California.  Joel is also fighting stage 4 fibromyxoid sarcoma, a rare cancer that is yet to have a cure.  Last year he ran 37 miles for his 37th birthday to raise money for the Brave Like Gabe Foundation, founded by Gabriel Grunewald to inspire people to share stories of being brave through their own struggles while also helping to find better and more effective treatments for rare cancer.  Joel was also a runner-up in the Brooks Runfulness Project, this led to he and is wife, Amanda co-founding the Running Buddies Project, which works to award VIP race day experiences to runners with life threatening illnesses.

This one will move you!  Joel is an amazing person with an outlook on life that is incredible.  He has made a choice to find hope and joy amid an awful diagnosis.  On this episode we talk about his cancer diagnosis, the misdiagnosed hematoma and  more.  We dive into what a support team means and having objectivity during everything.  Joel talks about his 37-mile run as well as other runs and the struggles he has faced.  All of this has led creating the Running Buddies Project.  Joel has a lot of enthusiasm when he talks about.  I find myself thinking often of this conversation.  There are so many valuable lessons in this one.
