Randi Schwartz Patient

Randi, an incredible athlete, was training for her first IRONMAN and did not feel as strong as she thought she should. A trip to the doctor helped her understand why: She had cancer. After a stem cell transplant and treatment, she wanted to try to get back to doing what she loved, and decided to join the MMRF’s inaugural Road to Victories team. She was one of 20 people who rode the first leg of the cross country inaugural ride, enduring long hot days through the Mojave and Sonora Deserts, followed by grueling climbs up the mountains of Arizona to Flagstaff,. The following year, Randi joined her R2V teammate and fellow myeloma patient Carmen Phaneuf as part of an Ironman Relay in Lake Placid, NY. Randi also gathers her friends and fellow triathletes in her local community of Ft. Lauderdale each year to come together as a community as part of the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run event. Randi is a force of nature and an inspiration to all. She is an incredible addition to this team as she shows that a diagnosis does not need to stop you from being active.Her positivity and attitude is contagious!

A Mission. A Celebration. A call to fear-less, love more and live generously!
