Scott Hamilton, Cancer Crusader

When figure skater Scott Hamilton was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1997, he fought the disease with the same determination that helped him win a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics. But Hamilton's battle with cancer was one victory he didn't win on his own. "The treatment I got from everyone at the Cleveland Clinic was extraordinary," he says. This year the Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative—established at the Cleveland Clinic's Taussig Cancer Institute—hit the $10 million mark in its goal to raise money for research and cancer awareness. Hamilton, 51, believes we are defined by how we deal with setbacks, on and off the ice. His credo: "The only true disability in life is a bad attitude."
