'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Mountain Climber and Cancer Survivor Sean Swarner
Date:3/6/2008

WASHINGTON, March 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This month, Sharing Miracles -- a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients -- will feature Sean Swarner, a two-time cancer survivor who has climbed the highest peaks on each of the seven continents.

Swarner was first diagnosed with the fourth -- and final -- stage of Hodgkin's disease at age 13. Despite being given merely days to live, he survived, only to be diagnosed several years later with the rare and deadly Askin's sarcoma. Against all odds, he defeated the Askin's tumor, and is believed to be the only person to have been diagnosed with both of these cancers.

Following his second conquest over cancer, Swarner challenged himself to take up mountain climbing in the name of cancer patients worldwide. Since then, despite having use of only one lung, he has climbed the highest peaks on the planet, from Mt. Everest in 2002 to Mt. McKinley just last year. He has become an advocate for cancer patients and survivors, carrying a flag atop each summit that reads, "Dedicated to all those affected by cancer in this small world!! Keep climbing!!"

In this month's Sharing Miracles show, Swarner speaks of the importance of hope, whether the struggle is against cancer or against a harsh mountain terrain: "The human body can live for 30 days without food, the human condition can sustain itself for 3 days without water, but no human can live for 30 seconds without hope."

In recognition for his perseverance and strength, Swarner was awarded the "Don't Ever Give Up Award," presented by the Jimmy V Foundation and ESPN in 2007. He is currently working to become only the fifth person to complete the "Adventure Grand Slam," which comprises the seven summits as well as treks to both the North and South Poles.

Previous episodes of Sharing Miracles have featured former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, who is battli
