Many of you know Sandra from class. You’ve run next to her on the treadmill, you’ve watched her opt for the more challenging weights, and you may have even heard that beautiful Irish accent! She hustles hard always and motivates many as she pushes herself throughout every class at Hustle!
But what you might not know is that outside of class, Sandra is facing one of her life’s biggest challenges: Glenn, Sandra’s husband and father to their 3 sons, is fiercely fighting Stage IIIA Lung Cancer. He has undergone a lobectomy and lymph node removal, immunotherapy and is currently going through chemotherapy. The goal is to be cured in 5 years.
A heavy list of procedures but Glenn is facing this head on and with an inspiring attitude! If you haven’t met Glenn, “a 48 year young family man and lover of continuous improvement”, a few of his own personal quotes (including that one!) give you an idea of both his bravery and his resolve in the midst of this journey!:
•”Name: Glenn Holland
Game: Killing my cancer
Fame: Positivity Guru”
•”I do not fear dying. I do fear not living”.
•”Be humble as one and some day you may move many”.
As caregiver, Sandra is currently on unpaid personal leave so that she can be home to care for Glenn as well as to continue to run their household. Her Hustle workouts have not only been a much-needed quick break as caregiver but they’ve also given her the strength and focus to be the best caregiver possible!
November 2nd was an amazing night at Hustle!
So many of you showed up to support Sandra and Glenn... and so many of you represented Glenn’s fight in your WHITE! Surrounded by friends and family, we HUSTLED!
Thank you, Ahmad, for pushing us out of our comfort zone with that workout and for motivating us to fight to the finish!
Glenn and Sandra, your outlook is inspiring. We were here for you for the donation class last night but, please know, our support doesn’t stop there. We’re a family. We’ll continue to cheer you on and support your family! And Glenn, when you’re ready, we’ll be there for your first class at Hustle! 🙌🏽
Please follow Glenn’s journey here!:
