wiring ceiling fan w/light to 2 light switches using two 2 cond. wires

How do I wire a ceiling fan with light to 2 switches, without running a 3 conductor wire? Each switch has a black and white wire running to the ceiling fan's electrical box. The wires are behind the finished drywall, and I don't see any way to run a 3 conductor wire... In short, I have 2 cables in the ceiling electrical box, each with 1 black 1 white and 1 ground where I'm mounting my ceiling fan. I know which cable goes to which switch from the box, but I'm not sure where the wires connect.
