In April 2018, Dany Garcia was diagnosed with cancer.
Since then, he’s been on a journey that’s led him to the front lines of a battle against his disease, where he’s working with a small army of bodybuilders, and now he’s taking the stage at this year’s Summer Classic of bodybuilding.
Garcia, whose real name is Dany Emmanuel Bouchard, is a 36-year-old Australian bodybuilder from Perth.
The “asian” bodybuilder is one of the few men in the world who regularly goes to a bodybuilding event in the Philippines, where the country’s strong bodybuilding tradition continues.
Garcadez’s journey to the big leagues Garcadeze’s journey started with a bang, on June 30, 2018, when he was diagnosed in the hospital with pancreatic cancer.
According to the International Cancer Society, “cancer is the second leading cause of death in men under the age of 40.”
Garcadezes mother, Angela, died from pancreatic cell cancer in August 2015, after having breast cancer diagnosed at the age 25.
Garcadez says he had “trouble” before his diagnosis.
“When I first started I was told that I would have to fight the disease for the rest of my life.
I feel like I’m still doing everything in my power to get better.” “
I’ve had a lot of help from my family, doctors, my coaches, my friends.
I feel like I’m still doing everything in my power to get better.”
The “Asians” bodybuilding scene Garcadeza’s bodybuilding journey has been fueled by a community of body builders.
There’s no shortage of talent in the “Asian” community, which is made up of more than 5,000 men and women in Australia.
“As a community we’ve had this really unique opportunity to create something new and unique, and we’re really proud of that,” says Garcadeez.
“There are some people who aren’t even allowed to go to bodybuilding events, and they’re like a part of our community and I’m just a part part of it.”
“But I’m also happy to be an athlete because I’m not ashamed of my body.” “
If you have a disability, we understand that,” he says.
“But I’m also happy to be an athlete because I’m not ashamed of my body.”
The idea for the “Asian” bodybuilders festival came from Garcadezi.
He’d always wanted to do something for the community and “I thought it was a really good idea,” he told The Australian.
“It was the perfect opportunity for us to have a good time together, to make a difference, to have fun and to build something that would be positive.”
“It’s something I’ve been working on for a long time, and it’s really exciting that I’m going to be able to be part of the festival,” he added.
Garadez’s body, his health and the bodybuilding world In the years since Garcadezanvelds diagnosis, his progress has been impressive.
“After almost six years of cancer, I’ve seen a huge improvement in my physical condition, in my overall quality of life, and I’ve become a much more active and healthier person,” he said.
“So now I have more energy, more energy to be a part to help those around me.”
“As we’ve seen from the last year, this is a really important period in my life, so I’m really excited about it,” Garcadezie added.
“My hope is that we can help a lot more people in the future.”
“Asian men are very strong, they have great stamina, they’re physically strong, and so are women, so we’re lucky to have the right people around us, and that’s the whole idea of the Asian bodybuilders” festival, he added, adding that “it’s not only about my health, but also about my family.”
Garadezes story is a story of survival, resilience and hope.
In the first year after the diagnosis, Garcadezzi’s doctor gave him a three-week supply of painkillers, which was enough to help him cope with the constant pain.
“The doctors told me that this is the first time I’ve ever felt that much pain in my entire life,” he remembers.
“We did a bit of research, we found out about a doctor who is based in the city, and he’s actually a doctor that specializes in the treatment of cancer patients.”
Garciaz says the doctors told him he had a long road ahead of him.
“And I’m so grateful to the doctors, and to the community for giving me this chance,” he adds.
