Michael is an expert in not only optimism and resilience, but walking the talk.
His life has been filled with adversity & overwhelming odds being told more than 4 times throughout his life that he was going to die, yet has not let that get in the road of achieving unbelievable heights.
His story is put simply an emotion roller coaster of courage, yet his message demonstrates the strength that one has within & demonstrates the choice we all have to continue living as a victim or to make a choice to take control make the change and become a navigator.
He is an extremely in demand inspirational speaker around the world and has the ability to instil hope and passion into lives with tools, stories and amazing outcomes.

I woke this morning to receive this email, it made me cry but also made me feel blessed! "Dear Michael, My name is Danielle, my 7 year old son is undergoing treatment for Stage 4 Neuroblastoma in Westmead at the moment. This morning another mother on the oncology ward handed me your book "kids don't get cancer" to read, wow, what an amazing read. I read the book today whilst sitting next to William's bed. This book is a book that all parents, nurses and carers in paediatric oncology should read. I want to thank you for not only sharing your story but finding the right words to share it. It is wonderful to hear someone's story that has beaten the odds not only from your point of view but your mums as well. As I read I cried, healing tears as I start to realise my emotions are/were similar to someone else's. Something that most people try to understand but bless them, just can't quite get it. Although there has been many break throughs in the treatment of Neuroblastoma (and other children's cancers) it is still one of the worst and lengthy treatment protocols and I know you understand that one thing that will never change is the emotional roller coaster we all travel on. I think about your family and what you all went through at such a young age and I am grateful that not only do I live fairly close to the hospital but our other children are older and a little more self sufficient. I know that this journey will have life time effects on all of us and as in yourself even survivors struggle. I hope William grows up to humble and honoured to share his story and wear his label as "cancer survivor" proudly. William was diagnosed in February this year. He has had 6 rounds of chemo, surgery, and currently in his 2nd bone marrow transplant. We still have radiation and immunotherapy to go. It's a long journey but as a mother there is no choice but to fight and give your child every chance they have, even when at times you feel there is no choice you still choose to fight, stand strong and advocate for your child. Once again thank you for sharing your story and a little of your families story, like many it helped me and gave me hope. Danielle ... See MoreSee Less
