Description
Michael has an absolute passion and belief in people's ability to change direction and become who they truly want to be and achieve success. This passion stems from his own story ... Before Michael was even one year old, he was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer of the central nervous system - a tumour had taken over half of his tiny body. The chance of Michael surviving was virtually non-existent. He started chemotherapy at 1 year old and by his second birthday, doctors had basically given up all hope. His only hope was taking part in a drug trial program - a program of which Michael was the only participant to survive the treatment. Although he survived, he was left with some permanent scars - only one lung, a damaged heart and a sensitive immune system. Michael Crossland sets an example for all of us. He's a man who has faced (and still faces) extreme challenges in life, but he never gives up. And despite his own obstacles, he always puts others before himself and gives so much to people in need. A true inspiration. A true hero.
