Sean Swarner Mission of Hope

Sean Swarner Mission of Hope

With only one functioning lung, a prognosis of fourteen days to live, and being in a medically-induced coma for a year, Sean Swarner is the first cancer survivor to stand on top of the world Mt. Everest. Sean has broken through defined human limitation in order to redefine the way the world views success.

Sean was diagnosed with two deadly, different, and unrelated forms of cancer, once at the age of thirteen and again at the age of sixteen. After an incredibly poor prognosis, and being read his last rites, Sean astounded the medical community when he survived both these brutal diseases. He realized that after defeating cancer twice, no challenge would ever be too great, no peak too high.

Sean proved his theory when he crested the peak of Mt. Everest. As the first cancer survivor to do so, Sean decided to continue climbing and has since topped the highest peaks in Africa, Europe, South America, Australia, Antarctica, and North America, thus completing the "7-Summits". Upon skiing to both the South and the North Poles, Sean completed the Explorer's Grand Slam. With the completion of the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, Sean is the only person in history to accomplish these inhuman feats.

As Sean continues to defy the odds, test his own endurance and inspire and motivate people around the world, he shares his message of healing, hope, and triumph with cancer patients worldwide. Sean also serves as a source of inspiration as the founder of the non-profit organization, The CancerClimber Association, as author of the book "Keep Climbing," and as a motivational speaker to corporations, universities, and other organizations around the globe.

Changing Your View: How Almost Dying Is A Good Thing

Surviving two cancers as a teen, Sean was forced to focus on what was important in life and not get caught up in distractions. Everyone facing a struggle must come to terms with their situation and take a step into the unknown. Moving past struggles toward your goal often requires a change in attitude and a change in how you see things. Sean will help make your success tangible by using his “Upside Down Mountain” analogy, making you successful even before you begin.
