Dean Hall is the first person in history to swim the entire 184 miles of Oregon’s Willamette River. He accomplished this feat in June of 2014 while he still had active leukemia and lymphoma to prove to cancer patients around the world that you don’t have to give up your dreams or your drive simply because you received a diagnosis. Now, cancer-free he continues to go to great lengths to raise money for cancer research and spread his inspirational message of healing and hope around the world.
During our interview we discussed:
- How cancer played a significant part of his life before his diagnosis.
- The meaning of Swimming in Miracles and how water has played a significant role in his physical and emotional healing.
- How a quote from Albert Einstein helped him chart a new course with his life.
- The role faith has played in his life.
