A Chicago man has overcome many obstacles in his life, and is using it to help other people.
Darin Steen is a 48-year-old holistic bodybuilder. But he hasn't always been this strong. Steen battled cancer when he was just two-years-old, and had to have a kidney removed.
Since then, he's lived his life all natural without drugs. And he's preparing for pro-natural bodybuilding competitions. He says he's using his success to help others.
"It's not about the trophy and it's about helping other people," Steen says. "When I hit big goals I can transfer that into my clients can hit bigger goals as well because I'm the teacher. When I do it and I teach it when I hit big goals and I teach my clients can reach big goals it pulls them right up."
Steen was in the Quad Cities today receiving special treatments from the Tri-Med Health and Wellness Center.
