Speaking Topics
  • Surviving Cancer

    In November 2009, Abdul-Jabbar was diagnosed with Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia, a rare form of blood and bone marrow cancer that creates an inordinate amount of white blood cells. He immediately thought he had a very limited time to live. However, with treatment, his long-term prognosis proved favorable, and in February 2011, doctors declared the retired NBA star free of cancer. To combat his illness, he worked closely with his doctors to develop a healthy regimen. Once very shy, Abdul-Jabbar now raises awareness about the disease and is a spokesperson for the pharmaceutical company Novartis. In this inspiring presentation, he speaks about his experience and the lessons he learned, as well as how he adapted and overcame what might have been a death sentence.
