Cancer. One word with so many emotions behind it. My only two options when I was 13 and diagnosed with cancer the first time were 1) fight for my life, or 2) give up and die. I was only given 3 months to live. Every time I had a treatment, I visualized myself inside my veins shooting the disease with chemo-loaded missiles. That combined with family support, prayer, and an inner will to live, was what got me through numerous nights not knowing if I was going to wake up. I was in remission for a few years until I heard that horrible word again and was given 14 DAYS to live. 10 years after being read my last rites and losing the function of a lung, I carried names of people touched by cancer to the top of the world – Mt. Everest. I trekked to the highest mountain on every continent and the South Pole – next is the North Pole. Every step of the way, people affected by this disease will be in my heart and on a flag. Through these journeys I’ve learned that we should not worry about dying, we should worry about not living a life that matters. #LoveWhatMatters #FlagofHope

We are excited to welcome @seanswarner to Marmot HQ today, where he brought in the #flagofhope. Just last week Sean brought this flag to the North Pole where he also completed the Explorer's Grand Slam (both poles and the Seven Summits) - the culmination of his #missionofhope!

​If I could go back, I’d tell myself at 13 that I’d beat cancer 2x, summit Mt. Everest, complete the Hawaii Ironman, be the first cancer survivor to complete the Explorer’s Grand Slam & inspire HOPE worldwide! Be sure to add a name to my #FlagofHope to send a loved one to the North Pole with me: seanswarner.com/missionofhope.

Happy #WorldCancerDay from the top of the Empire State Building! I may have beat cancer 2x, but I'm never going to stop fighting it! Add a name to my #FlagofHope that I'm taking to my upcoming expedition to the North Pole (link in bio) Let's end cancer together! Let's go to the North Pole! #explorersgrandslam #CancerClimber #CancerSurvivor

Just a few more hours to add the name of a loved one to @SeanSwarner's #FlagofHope as he sets out for the North Pole. This modern day Superman is on a mission to raise $50,000 for cancer associations all over the country, and he needs your help. "I'm proving there's life after cancer," said Swarner in an interview with @CBSNews. "And that it can be a fantastic life." #XX2iOptics #CancerClimber #MissionofHope #ExplorerGrandSlam

When you hear of someone who’s been diagnosed with cancer, it can be difficult to feel hopeful. What’s one message of hope that you would say to this person? #CancerClimber #FlagofHope

I'm getting closer and closer to the North Pole, but it's not easy... In fact, the conditions are very difficult, really rough. It's -42 degrees and if I don't moisturize and keep my fingers warm, I'll lose a finger. I've witnessed six people get evacuated so far — that's 20% of all of those attempting the treacherous trek to the North Pole. I hope they're OK! Every moment is a struggle, but the 1960 people on my flag make every moment up here worth it. If everything goes perfectly, I'll reach the pole in a few days. Inspire me by sending me messages on my expedition: http://seanswarner.com/mission-of-hope-sean/. #FlagofHope #CancerAwareness #CancerClimber 📸Christopher Michel
