This week we flip the show by taking a look inside an organization that brings hope to cancer patients. This is a message of inspiration and hope. Why do we strive to help others? Why is important that companies support and lift up organizations? You’ll hear the amazing story of Sean Swarner and how he delivers a message of hope and inspiration.

Part two: Top of the world, Ma!
What do the Boston Marathon, the Ironman World Championship, the South Pole, and Mount Everest have in common?
Part three: Giving Hope
Sean has an incredible story of survival and a knack for doing the impossible. He uses this to remind other survivors that they need to live life to the fullest. Sean and his brother Seth created Cancer Climbers Association to deliver this message.
Their Adventure Support Grant takes survivors to Africa for a six-day hike up Mount Kilimanjaro followed by a five-day safari.
CCA is working on a mobile camp for kids. This “portable” camp will go to children’s hospitals across the US and serve as a beacon of hope, reminding these kids what it’s like to experience life to the fullest and encourage them to hold on to that hope.
The camp has several tents for children to sleep in, a movie theater, and many physical activities–all within safe reach of the hospital.
Sean is also a speaker. He brings his message of hope to businesses and colleges everywhere. After listening to his story, you can’t say that your business or personal goals are impossible.
