    Creating a Life After Disaster with Matt Ode | Coaching & Speaking

    Creating a Life After Disaster with Matt Ode | Coaching & Speaking

    Hi My Name is Matt Ode and at the age of 24, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Testicular Cancer.

    At the age of 25, I was hospitalized in the Cleveland Clinic ICU for 53 days, forcing me into a 2 week coma, suffered complete kidney and liver failure, went into cardiac arrest, had an open abdominal wound from hip to hip and whittled down from a healthy 185 lbs to 110 lbs. Needless to say, I had to start my life over from rock bottom.

    Due in large part to my health and fitness background as a personal trainer, a strong mindset, faith, and amazing support system, I am now weighing in at 200 lbs and cancer free. I am on a mission to share my story so I can help individuals overcome adversity in their lives, discover their purpose and give them the courage and tools to go out and conquer their dreams.

    If you are looking for a professional, inspirational speaker who is passionate about helping others in life, look no further!
