Still I Rise Foundation

Daniel George was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer in 2012, which saw him endure months of brutal chemotherapy and multiple surgeries. Upon completing his treatment, Daniel created the Still I Rise Foundation which provides a counselling service for cancer patients, their family and friends and also for medical staff.

This podcast is just another tool to help those having a hard time at the moment, either with cancer or any other challenge.  

Thank you for listening.

Welcome to the first episode of the Still I Rise Foundation podcast.  Your host and Foundation chairman Daniel George provides some background to Still I Rise and also the motivation behind starting this podcast. 

We then sit down with Foundation ambassador, and professional triathlete Ellie Salthouse who Daniel first saw whilst Ellie was running 1km sprints on a Saturday night, in the middle of winter, in the dark and in the rain.  Needless to say, we have known she is mentally tough for a while. 

Ellie shares with us how close she came to walking away from the sport 12 months ago, her successes of 2016 in her new distance of 70.3 half ironman, and the lessons she has learned along the way. 

We are excited to bring you this podcast, and hope you enjoy our first episode.
