Thanks to @runnersworld for spreading the inspiring story of Carlos Cántaro, who ran a 10K with MDRTB!

According to Partners in Health, a global health nonprofit that works with health organizations in developing countries, one third of MDR-TB patients die from the disease, which ravages the lungs. Poor people such as Cantaro, who lives in a hillside shanty in Lima, are especially likely to die from the disease because treatment is expensive and lasts two years.
