“My survival alone was a miracle.” Diagnosed in 2002 with a life threatening head and neck cancer, Liam Ryan’s doctors told him he should have never survived.…
“You can go 30 days without food; you can live 3 days without water, but you can’t go 30 seconds without HOPE.”
Okay, here’s the skinny: Sean Swarner is headed to the North Pole, and yes, this will be an incredible personal achievement, triumph; however, this trek is SO much more…
This is a mission of hope, a labor of love, a gift to US; this is NOT about Sean and his renown. No, in my humble opinion, and having spent time with him over the course of the last year, THIS is about YOU!
SO, do NOT pass GO! rather go here; do NOT collect $200 rather donate what you can and place your name, the name of someone you love, or the name of a friend who has been affected by cancer on Sean’s #FlagOfHope.
Join me as I join Sean in spirit on this most worthy #MissionOfHope.
She has been a cancer patient, survivor, heart transplant recipient and documentary film producer.
As a child, she was successfully treated for Ewing’s Sarcoma. Her experience led her to become a nurse serving the physical, psychosocial, and educational needs of children, adolescents, and their families along the cancer trajectory.
Stephanie holds a B.A. in Psychology from Furman University, and a B.S., and M.S in Nursing from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Florida. At Dartmouth, Stephanie helped establish the Survivorship Clinic with Eric Larsen, MD and Sara Chaffee, MD. This clinic provided ongoing personal support and education for childhood cancer survivors and their families.
In April 2008, Stephanie’s heart failed as a result of the radiation and Doxorubicin used to cure her Ewing’s Sarcoma as a child. She received a heart transplant at the Cleveland Clinic.
As a result of this experience, she co-produced an award winning documentary ‘Resilient: the Story of Late Effects of Cancer Treatment’, highlighting the challenges faced by survivors, families, and friends.
Stephanie resides in the metro Atlanta area with her husband and their 12-year-old-son. The Zimmermans enjoy everything from Formula One Racing and college & NFL football to go carting, ziplining, and cycling.
