Biography

Over a period of 10 years, Alan Hobson was a member of three self-guided, self-organized and corporately sponsored $500,000 expeditions to Mt. Everest before reaching the summit. But that was not his toughest climb. Three years after standing on the highest physical point on Earth, he was diagnosed with the very aggressive blood cancer, acute leukemia, and given less than a year to live. At diagnosis, 90 percent of the cells in his bone marrow were cancerous. He endured over 500 hours of chemotherapy before receiving the modern day equivalent of a bone marrow transplant, an adult blood stem cell transplant. On the day of his transplant he was so weak that he could not stand for more than a minute. He is now one of less than a few dozen people in the world ever to have regained an elite level of fitness after such a transplant, a tiny fraction of the number of people who have climbed Everest.

Mr. Hobson is the international bestselling author of seven books and has appeared on many national television talk shows, including Oprah. A former nine-time All-American gymnast, marathon runner, hang glider pilot, white water kayaker, cold water scuba diver, parachutist, journalist and broadcaster, he is also the winner of the prestigious William Randolph Hearst Award for Excellence in News Writing. His latest passions include cycling in summer, cross-country skiing in winter and hiking year-round. His mission is to continue his climb back from cancer and help as many others as possible do the same. To that end, he recently released, 7 Steps to Cancer Survivorship – A Guide for the Newly Diagnosed and now works as an online and offline Climb Back from Cancer Coach.

Alan Hobson lives in his favorite playground, the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains in Canmore, Alberta, north of Montana. They provide him with priceless solitude, sanctuary and rejuvenation. He was born to help others see the world from a refreshing new perspective – one above the clouds of fear and doubt where hope, strength and courage emerge triumphantly from within each of us.

“My inner Everest dwarfed the outer one,” recalls Alan. “It was a very long fall and an even longer and harder climb back.”
