Steve Pullen a former Ironman Champion was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer known as Poems Syndrome – one that strengthens his bones but attacks his nerves. He actually lost his ability to walk but since his treatment, he’s walking again. At first with the aid of splints and a walking stick he’s now back on his feet without aids. After facing a massive health battle and cancer diagnosis in early 2014, Sunshine Coast Ironman Champion Steve Pullen, has a new found appreciation for life. The 1999 National Open Champion was diagnosed with POEMS Syndrome, an extremely rare multisystem disorder. At 39, he is the fourth youngest person in the world to be diagnosed with this disease most often found in those over the age of 55.
