PAINCAVE Founder Mike Egan Shares His Story And Battle With Cancer

 

You know the feeling you get, when you’re flying down the highway at 80mph and you pass a cop?  A momentary flash that began when you saw the car, and ended when the car didn’t pursue.  For me, that same sensation carved out a temporary residence in my core and didn’t check out for months when I was diagnosed with Non-Hogkins Lymphoma in 2005.  And yet, that fear would come to pass.

Cancer has always been my body’s way of pushing me around.  Triathlon has become my way of pushing back

Six years later- after a few health scares, multiple Ironman finishes, 2 Ironman World Championship qualifications, I started PAINCAVE. And here we are-two years later.  Our subscription numbers continue to grow, our library of episodes is expanding, Race Directors are partnering with us, and we’ve created a brand that we are all proud of.  We are becoming Life’s Change Agent.  The challenges I face now are easily drowned out by my belief in what I am doing.  The difficulty when starting a business is that often times you are so insulated, each decision occurring in a vacuum, it’s easy to lose sight of this belief.

“Promote Health and proper nutrition for athletes… reduce soreness and aid recovery… provide the Nutrients Athletes Need to Train more effectively.”

EnduroPacks aren’t just a product you buy, they are an essential tool built on a foundation of principles, principles that have inspired many of our lives.

After my diagnosis, my oncologist basically said “if you want to stay ahead of this, be as healthy as you can be… people get tired walking up a flight of stairs because they’re out of shape, you don’t have that luxury. Stay as fit as possible so that symptoms that would be ignored by others raise huge red flags for you.”

And that’s what I’ve done. EnduroPacks daily system is exactly what is required for me to maintain as sharp an edge as possible in pursuit of Good Health. A pursuit we all endeavor to make. The better I feel, the greater the delta between “normal” and “sick.” For many of you, improvement may be the sole motivation. We can all live with that.
