HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A Henrico County man is combining his cancer diagnosis with his love of cycling to raise awareness for a disease that has no cure.
It was while riding his bike in 2014, that Jim Hall noticed something was off.
“I could hardly keep up with the beginners,” Jim Hall said. “So I went to my family physician and told her something was really wrong.”
After multiple tests, Hall was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, the second most common blood cancer in the U.S.
“After I hung up with my doctor, we sat on the side of the interstate and cried for about a half an hour,” Hall said.
He underwent multiple surgeries and chemotherapy treatments. Then, fast forward to this year when he found a way to combine his love of cycling with his battle with cancer.
