- Cancer Survivor
- Ironman Competitor
- Conquered the "7 Summits"
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”.
With the completion of the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, Sean has his sights on...
"In the past we have had visitors ranging from Olympic Gold Medalists to NFL players. Athletes travel from all over the country to attend camp for a day and speak to our campers. After the week was over, it was unanimously decided that Sean was the most compelling, motivating and inspirational speaker that our staff and our campers had ever seen."
