Anchorage’s own Olympic Gold Medalist and all-around unbelievable athlete Kikkan Randall Wednesday announced on social media that she’s been diagnosed with breast cancer.

“The color pink has taken on a new chapter in my life as I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Although we caught it early and the prognosis is good, my life will change quite a bit in the coming months. I have returned to Anchorage for treatment at @providencealaska Cancer Center. It’s a scary thing to learn you have cancer and I have wondered every day since how this could have possibly happened to me. But I have promised myself that I will remain positive and active and determined throughout my treatment. I am going to bring as much tenacity, strength, and energy toward this challenge as I have throughout my entire career.”

Cancer picked on the wrong person in this fight.

Positive thoughts and prayers to you Kikkan…we are all behind you in this fight…one we are confident you will win.
