CHICAGO (WLS) -- Have you ever heard of "Sweetest Day?" Also, would you still be able to recognize your coworkers after nearly two years of working from home? Val and Ryan weigh in on these topics and more this week on Windy City Weekend.
Bodybuilding cancer survivor shows how strong she still is
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Ryan caught up with bodybuilder and survivor Erica Langley, who shows him just how strong she is, literally and figuratively!
Langley was preparing for her first bodybuilding competition when a shocking diagnosis derailed her plans. After dropping a noticeable amount of weight, she felt a peach pit-sized lump on her breast which was later diagnosed as breast cancer.
Langley worked with her team of doctors at The University of Chicago Medicine and underwent 20 weeks of radiation and a double mastectomy. When it was safe, she returned to the gym and began training with her coach, Bolo Young. Not only did she beat breast cancer, but she also beat her competition, taking home a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medal. Langley credits her doctors and support system for helping her stay positive and motivated while battling cancer.
Now, she says she is in the best shape of her life! Langley and the doctors at The University of Chicago Medicine encourage everyone to get regular screenings and yearly mammograms.
