Endurance. As a marathon runner and biker—someone who built their career at sportwear powerhouses like Reebok, it’s a concept I’m very familiar with. How could I not be? From pushing my own body, to thinking about the way others push theirs, I’ve done so much to explore just how amazing the human body is. But ironically, it was something I wasn’t seeking out at all that taught me the most.

This Cause Chose Us

In October 2014, I received a life-changing diagnosis. Stage four breast cancer—or as I refer to it, “treatable, non-curable cancer”. The news was shocking. At the time, I was well into my newest professional venture as Brand Leader & Marketing Director of OOFOS. I was active as ever, and felt perfectly healthy. How could I have cancer? Regardless of how devastating the news was, my reaction was not to cry. It was to live. To endure.

To Health

With the support of my amazing husband, Tom, our four sons, and our family and friends, I began treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts. Over the past few years, there have been highs and lows. But through it all, I’ve made a commitment to myself. To enjoy the highs. Persevere through the lows. And prove that the human body has more endurance than anyone could imagine.

To health,
Duncan

Her Legacy

We lost our beloved friend on May 26, 2019 after a four-year battle with breast cancer. Her legacy lives on in each and every one of us here at OOFOS with our mission to make everyone feel better. We continue to work with our partners at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to support new medical breakthroughs. And we won't stop until we find a cure.
