Iram Leon is a brain cancer survivor who was diagnosed shortly after he turned 30. Statistically speaking, he was not supposed to make it to 40 (Iram’s 40th birthday was August 8th of this year!). From the beginning, he’s aimed to choose life over death, including postponing his brain surgery to run a marathon. He has continued running today, and even found a way to combine it with his greatest love, his daughter, who he won a marathon with while pushing her in a stroller. He is currently a mediator and a speaker at various events, and previously worked as a juvenile probation officer and as a high school teacher. While he has been featured in media around the world and loves the next adventure, he’s always thankful to be home because that’s where his heart is.
