What would you do if you were told to be dying of one of the most feared diseases in the world, Cancer? Here is Sean Swarner, who was told not once but twice that he was dying from cancer but, unlike many, he refused to back down. The story of this two times cancer survivor from USA is not only inspiring but has also gained him the Don't Ever Give Up Award.
The man who dreaded to crawl 8 feet from the hospital bed to the bathroom has now redefined impossible by climbing 7 summits to reach the top of the Mt. Everest. You might be wondering if this was something great, but what if I said that he accomplished this with only one functioning lung. Yes, you heard it right, he has become the first cancer survivor to complete the Explorers Grand Slam, climbing the seven summits and traversing the last degree to both of the poles, all with one lung alone. And thats not all of it; he has also efficaciously completed Ironman Hawaii.
He was diagnosed twice with totally unrelated forms of cancer, at the age of thirteen with Hodgkin's disease and the other was with Askin's sarcoma when he was sixteen years of age. The whole medical community considered it as a miracle when Sean survived both the brutal disease. It was astonishing to see him walk away from his death bed. But his encounter with fierce cancer twice strengthened him and also made him realize that from then on, no challenge could ever be too great and no peak too high, for him.
The Cancer Climber Association is his own establishment which upholds cancer attentiveness and also helps to raise money for performing researches on cancer. Keep climbing is the book, authored by Sean, which recounts his journey from the rock bottom of his near death experience to his conquering the peaks and reaching atop of the world. He always believed that if we want to do something and we have a goal, do it, don't wait, because our channel might change sometime soon, that too quite unexpectedly. His life inspires us to rise like a phoenix from ashes and triumph over the world.
