It’s almost GO! Time for our friend, Sean Swarner, a 2 time survivor of childhood cancer to embark on a history making trek to the North Pole. Upon arrival at the North Pole, he will officially be the only individual to complete the Explorer’s Grand Slam: BOOM!
And he’ll be carrying a flag with names of cancer patients, past and present.
CALL TO ACTION:
Tomorrow when you think coffee, bring Sean to mind and forego the Joe, give $5 (or more!) to add some names of those you know who have been affected by cancer: Easy-Peasy [I know because I made our my first donation this evening].

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.
