Resilient People

Hope and a positive mindset help this doctor maintain his resilience against cancer

Episode Summary

Jim Swan is a well-known cardiologist in Canada. He and his twin brother George did a lot together both growing up and as adults. They played competitive hockey and socialized together. They even spoke almost everyday on the phone. In 2019, Jim lost her beloved brother George to a terminal brain cancer called glioblastoma (GBM). About a year later, Jim discovered that he has the same disease. As he did in his medical practice for so many years, he committed to helping others by establishing a $3 million fund to help find the genetic causes for GBM. He spoke with me about his brother, their bond, where he draws his resilience from as well as his new purpose.
