50 year old bodybuilder, David Prescott was diagnosed with liver cancer 4 years ago. He had tumors in his liver and intestines! He was in the hospital and lost 27 lbs and half his liver was removed! he also had 57 staples holding his body together. He said bodybuilding is what gave him the strength to fight through! in addition to the cancer he also had a heart attack!

David Prescott:
Bodybuilding always gets a pretty raw deal and a lot of negative things follow the sport around.

For me, it has given me the fight, discipline, determination and the character to come out of that four year spell of major health issues wanting to be fit and healthy again.

Never be surprised with how much your body can soak up, and with a strong frame of mind what it can physically and mentally overcome.

People say if their story could inspire one person they would be happy. I couldn't think of anybody better to inspire than my own son.

Nice story but what caused the issues in the first place? Diet? Drugs?

Well lifting and any form of exercise for that matter when done frequently releases endorphins. This helps the body feel good and also battle pain. So this is not a huge surprise to me at all. A lot of it is mental to of course.

Well anything that gives that personal motivation and personal strength certainly as the ability to save you. It would seem that bodybuilding really provide those for this guy, and I am very glad to hear that. I am sure that it does that for a lot of people out there, and people dedicate their lives to it so you would assume that they are motivated and destined to take it seriously and use it to benefit themselves. Very interesting to think about, and thanks for sharing.
