"If I'd have had more time, I'd have written a shorter letter" ~Blaise Pascal
Over the past month, our local paper has been running a series titled “The Longevity Project.” There has been a series of great articles, and they are hosting a virtual Keynote event featuring Sean Swarner this Wednesday, September 30, at 6 pm MT.
By the time he was 16, Swarner had battled two different types of cancer, spent a year in a medically induced coma, been given 14 days to live at one point, and had the Last Rites administered. He beat it all but lost the function of one lung in the process.
Now 46, he has summited not only Mt Everest, but also the tallest peak on each of the other six continents, trekked to both the North and South poles, and competed in the Hawaiian Iron Man competition.
He’s a fairly impressive dude.

I think they are asking for voluntary donations if you attend the virtual keynote, but the articles below are available at that link as well:
IN SHORT: Advancements in medical technology combined with the incredible strength of the human spirit are combining to allow us to live longer, healthier lives.
Make it a great day!
