In this episode of RESILIENT PEOPLE, I had the pleasure of speaking with extreme adventurer Sean Swarner. Sean has scaled the world’s seven tallest summits, hiked to the south and north poles making him a member of the exclusive Explorer’s Grand Slam. He did all of this with only one lung.

A survivor of 2 children cancers, Sean has proven that anything is possible and aims to inspire cancer patients and others to conquer their own mountains. As someone who has spent his entire life overcoming challenges, I was keen to learn what inspires Sean, where he gets his resilience from and what standing on top of the world is like given everything he’s been through.
