Segments in this Video

Runner Gabriel Grunewald (08:45)


Dr. Sanjay Gupta focuses on three athletes whose sports are just as much a part of their treatment as any medicine. He begins with 31-year-old runner who battles a rare cancer. She competed in Olympic trials with a softball-sized tumor in her liver.

Football Player Jake Olson (08:05)

Olson crosses campus with the help of his service dog, Quebec. Olson lost his eyes to a rare cancer when he was a child; but that does not stop him from playing football for one of the country’s most storied programs.

Surfer Kieran Carter (06:15)

Gupta discusses Carter, a surfer who was born with Down syndrome. There are three types of Down syndrome, and he has the most common, trisomy 21. Carter gets surfing lessons from 16-year-old Antoine de Mascarel, the founder of Dubai’s Surf for All program.
