Brian Boyle’s incredible story has been featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, NBC’s Today Show, ESPN, CNN, and several other programs throughout the country that have earned Emmy nominations and awards.
Brian's story is about transforming a tragedy into a triumph, but it’s also about the universal ability that we all have to set goals and accomplish them. When a challenge is presented to us, we do our best to overcome whatever the situation is, and as a result, we learn something about ourselves through the process that makes us stronger.
He tells a personal and emotional story of his fight back from near death after a horrific automobile accident. He lost sixty percent of his blood, his heart had moved across his chest, and his organs and pelvis were pulverized. Brian had to be brought back to life eight times on the operating table.
He focuses on his experience as a patient who, while in a two-month long medically induced coma, was unable to move or talk to anyone around him, yet he was able to hear, see and feel pain. If he lived, doctors predicted he might not be able to walk again, and certainly not swim. Then, miraculously, Brian clawed his way back to the living. First blinking his eyelids, then squeezing a hand, then smiling, he gradually emerged from his locked-in state and went on to make a full recovery, which involved swimming on his college team and crossing the finish line in the 2007 Hawaii Ironman.
After the recovery was complete, his inspirational message spread rapidly throughout the nation. He has traveled the country and given over one hundred keynote presentations for a variety of corporations, universities, medical and nursing schools, athletic conferences, state hospital associations, real estate and financial groups, and at dozens of healthcare leadership conventions.
Brian's journey of courage and determination has touched the hearts of millions, and his story and the message it carries has been celebrated around the world.
