For seven months, Dareen proved she was a real trooper while enduring her chemotherapy.
Fortunately, the doctors had great news for her. The cancer was gone, but so was her energy, and her left leg. As an athlete, losing a leg was about the worst thing she could have ever experienced in her young life.
Exercising was like falling in love again because being athletic was something she loved as a kid.
Being an athlete became essential for her in order to keep her stamina and strength in check. It also helped her on an emotional level too, which is why she decided to become a certified gym instructor.
Dareen owes a lot to the world of exercise, but she also has another support system that she can't deny.
Not only does she have her husband, Ramzi Gholmieh, rooting for her, but she also has two adorable children, nine-year-old Emilio, and five-year-old Katie who are the light of her life. It’s safe to say they make her world shine bright, every single day.
Dareen proved that losing a leg may be tough, but it doesn't have to be a life-ending situation.
Aside from starting a family with her husband, she also learned how to drive, completed her studies, and went on to live a fulfilling life, which also included running and finishing marathons. Is there anything she can't do?
