3-Time Cancer Survivor Brings Others to Top of World

Sean Swarner is a three-time cancer survivor, a medical marvel, adventurer and an inspiration to anyone who hears him speak.

The fact that he’s alive is no small miracle, but the way he’s teaching others to live with passion is truly amazing.

At the age of 13, Sean was diagnosed with Stage IV non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and  doctors gave him 3 months to live. But he survived.

Then, at age 16, during a check-up for the first cancer, doctors discovered a golf ball-sized tumor on Sean’s right lung. In one day, the tumor was discovered, biopsied, removed and he was started on chemo. Once again, the prognosis was grim — he was given two weeks to live and given last rites.

But through it all, Sean said he never got angry.

“You can be angry at the world or you can accept that everyone in life goes through hardships. I chose to see life through a different set of eyes,” Sean says.

For him, that means giving back by doing something meaningful with his life. Sean says his goal is to show people that obstacles in life are actually opportunities for meaningful change.

Among his accomplishments, Sean has become the only person in history to climb the highest mountain on every continent, trek to the South & North Poles, and complete the Hawaii Ironman – all with one lung.

Through his charity, Cancer Climber Association​​, Sean is helping other survivors reach heights they never dreamed possible.
