Tony Newberne

At 39, Tony had only just started his personal training business when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2013. Tony’s diagnosis began when he hurt his back during a training session. The pain eventually became severe enough for the ER, where CT scans confirmed L1, L3, and L4 vertebrae fractures along with numerous lytic lesions. He was admitted to the hospital and immediately started treatment. Tony began chemotherapy in October of 2013, received vertebroplasty in November, and kyphoplasty in February of 2014 to help stabilize his vertebrae and prevent further fractures. Tony received his autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in 2016 without complication. Back then, his doctors predicted he wouldn’t be able to resume a vigorous training schedule. Today, he’s in the gym daily and has relaunched his personal training business. With unwavering support from his faith, family, and friends, Tony knows the body and spirit can overcome enormous challenges.
