Bio

I have competed in the Open every year it has existed. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on June 6, 2014. 6 rounds of chemo thru 10/28, surgery on 11/18, and 6 weeks of radiation ending 1/16. I'm in a clinical trial now for 14 rounds of chemo-lite thru September 2015. And, I am doing the Open! I may not be where I was last year, but CrossFit is infinitely scalable. I am not letting cancer steal something I love. More about me— WOD Outlet Athlete Profile: Allison Bender: http://youtu.be/eOiP-raOKoI
