Extreme explorer Sean Swarner pushes us to conquer our own Everest
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.

Her son's death led Melissa Sheldrick to become a patient safety advocate
This podcast challenged me. Janet’s story is profound, as is her determination to use the pain to help others. Janet speaks with polish and compassion to draw stories out from her guests. iI’m also challenged by the accomplishments of her her guests.
Accomplishments by her guests, such as transgendered man Terrence Rodriguez who advocates for kids in the LGBQT community. And Elizabeth Verway who who married as a teen and divorced at the age of 56. She used her loneliness to build community to reach out to others dealing with loneliness.
