ROB BESECKER is an author, inspirational speaker, and healthcare professional who spends much of his time advocating for hospice care patients and their families. His passion for healthcare and helping others live their best lives comes from his own experience living with chronic heart ailments and muscular dystrophy, and a relentless drive to squeeze the most value out of each day. A global adventurist and semi-professional bucket list-checker, Besecker has visited all seven continents, the Great Pyramids and the Great Wall of China. In his triumphant personal memoir, he shares the fascinating story of the physical and mental challenges that led him on a journey of incredible adventure and self-discovery—from months spent in hospital beds, questioning his chances of survival, to leaping toward his biggest challenge yet: a hiking expedition to the base camp of Mt. Everest. Nobody believed he could achieve such a feat, and most believed he shouldn’t attempt it. But Besecker did it anyway—not to prove them wrong but to show himself, and the world, that when you’re knocked down, you get back up . . . EVEREST STRONG.
