Redefining The Impossible with World-Record Holder Sean Swarner

Featuring: Sean Swarner

Today’s guest isn’t just a cancer survivor he is truly a medical marvel. Sean Swarner is the only person in the world ever to have been diagnosed with both Hodgkin’s disease and Askin’s sarcoma. He was diagnosed in the fourth and final stage of Hodgkin’s disease at the age of thirteen when doctors expected him to live for no more than three months. He overcame his illness only to be stricken a second time when a deadly golf ball-sized tumor attacked his right lung. After removal of the Askin’s tumor, Sean was expected to live for less than two weeks. A decade later and with only partial use of his lungs, Sean became famous for being the first cancer survivor to climb Mount Everest. He is now a world-renowned mountaineer and climber, author, speaker, and performance coach who is voted top 10 most inspirational people in the world. Please welcome Sean Swarner.
