Sean Swarner on Completing the Explorers Grand Slam After Cancer

Sean Swarner is a man who has made a life out of defying the odds. When he was told not once but twice that he was dying from cancer, he refused to give in. At Mount Everest, where no one thought a cancer survivor with one functioning lung could summit, Swarner did. And now he’s become the first cancer survivor to complete the Explorers Grand Slam — climbing the seven summits and traversing the last degree to both of the poles. And if that wasn’t enough, he also completed Ironman Hawaii. We caught up with Swarner to hear about his story, find out what’s next, and see what advice he might have for us.
