NHL Patient Sets State Powerlifting Record

Jason Orts of the Seguin (Texas) Gazette reports about Joseph Kosarek today. Kosarek, a low grade NHL survivor for more than 10 years, set a new state amateur record for the dead lift for his age and the 161.5 weight class with a lift of 423.5 pounds! And that after CHOP chemo, radiation and interferon treatments.

Kosarek says “Cancer is a very difficult thing to overcome. There’s no doubt about that. But if you just continue to keep pushing forward, you can get over it.”
