Sean Swarner: Z enim delujočim pljučnim krilom, prognozo štirinajstih dni življenja in enim letom v medicinsko povzročeni komi do Mount Everesta, vrha sveta.

AmCham YOUng travel edition smo pripravili za vse ljubitelje potovanj in dogodivščin. Tokrat bomo spoznali Seana Swarnerja*. Sean je spoznal, da ko dvakrat premagaš raka, noben izziv ni prevelik in noben vrh previsok. To je dokazal, ko se je povzpel na vrh Mount Everesta in od takrat dosegel vse najvišje vrhove v Afriki, Evropi, Južni Ameriki, Avstraliji, na Antarktiki in v Severni Ameriki, in tako uspešno osvojil vseh “7 vrhov”.

Kako mu je to uspelo, kaj vse je na svoji poti doživel in kaj vse ga še čaka, ga boste lahko vprašali v četrtek, 15. aprila 2021, ob 16.30.


*Sean Swarner: What is your excuse?

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 limitations 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 the author of the book “Keep Climbing,” and as a motivational speaker to corporations, universities, and other organizations around the globe.
