Carolyn Kaelin
Boston, Massachusetts
First PMC: 2000

Carolyn Kaelin is a surgeon and founding director of the Comprehensive Breast Health Center at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. In June 2003, she was diagnosed with three separate breast cancers. "You'd think I would have acquired an immunity for this one particular condition," she notes. Following two surgeries in July, and a frenetic survey of sporting goods stores in the Boston's Back Bay for a sports bra she could put on without having to lift her arm above her shoulder, Carolyn made it to the final water stop in the 2003 PMC. In the 2004 event, shortly after her sixth surgery, she made it to the finish line in Bourne. Carolyn and her husband Bill were extraordinarily frank with their two children about her illness. "For my kids having the mystery taken out of the situation was very positive," she says. "What's important now is that roll up my sleeves and get on with things."

"Irony is the big operative word here."
