Ann Marie and Ryan Shazier

Ann Marie Tarasovitch began experiencing health problems in her mid-40s and ended up with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, an incurable condition. A few years later came another major challenge: breast cancer. Ann Marie used both conditions as motivation, challenging herself to live for the moment. Although she exercised before her illnesses, she greatly increased her activity afterward. She competes in half marathons, sprint triathlons, open-water swims, obstacle courses, and other races. Today, she is a breast cancer survivor and is effectively managing her multiple sclerosis. And she’s still moving. Hear her story in the latest episode of the “Ryan Shazier’s 50 Phenoms” podcast.
