On today’s episode, I have special guest Alex Powell who is a former Dayton University women’s soccer player. I first heard Alex’ story on the podcast and immediately reached out to her to get her on the show. Alex is actually the first athlete on the show that is not an ACL patient. She has a condition that affects 3 in 1 million people called a desmoid tumor also known as aggressive fibromatosis.
On today's episode, Alex and I discuss:

  1. Alex's Medical History
  2. Her initial reaction to finding out the news about her rare disease
  3. The hardest part about her recovery process
  4. Why she stayed on her college soccer team
  5. What Alex has learned through her journey
  6. Advice Alex has for athletes recovering from long-term injuries
  7. Her non-profit
