Mount Everest presents incredible dangers, but for Sean Swarner the obstacles he overcame prior to his summiting make his story even more compelling. Sean isn't just a cancer survivor, but a medical marvel--the only person in the world ever to have been diagnosed with both Hodgkin's disease and Askin's sarcoma. He was diagnosed in the final stage of Hodgkin's disease at the age of thirteen, expected to live for no more than three months. He overcame his illness only to be stricken a second time when a deadly tumor attacked his right lung. After removal of the Askin's tumor, Sean was expected to live for less than two weeks. A decade later, with only partial use of his lungs, Sean became the first cancer survivor to climb Mount Everest. Sean's story is not just about illness, heartache, and pain; it's about hope. It's about helping others and never quitting.--From publisher description.
