    An Italian athlete is coming to New York, not to stop a war, but to continue one that he began 4 years ago in 2012 against cancer, an incurable lung tumor that metastasized. Leonardo Cenci goes by the name “Leo,” which, in Italian, means lion. He is the type of person who loves life and is not easily intimidated by the challenges that we as humans sometimes encounter, especially ones that can shorten our lives. Leo also conceived the “Oncology Games,” and created “Avanti Tutta”, an organization that, through its programs, promotes a healthy lifestyle and gives dignity to individuals afflicted by cancer.

Leonardo Cenci, detto Leo, che vuol fire anche leone, è uno che ama la vita e non si fa intimorire dalle avversità che nella vita a volte si incontrano specialmente quelle che la vita possono stroncarla. Leo ha anche ideato gli ”Oncology Games,” e creato ”Avanti Tutta” una associazione che vuol dare con i suoi programmi dignità ai malati di cancro e promuovere uno stile di vita sano.
