Part Two: Swimming for His Life with Dean Hall
This episode is full of hope, grit, and living your dream life, no matter your circumstance.
I talk with Dean Hall, a licensed clinical therapist for over 30 years. He specializes in helping clients recover from trauma, anxiety, and health conditions like chronic pain and cancer.
Dean is an author, a highly sought-after speaker, advice columnist, and expert in the field of neuroacoustics. Dean is also a two-time cancer survivor, widower, and world-record-setting extreme distance swimmer. He was the first person to swim the entire 187-mile length of the Willamette River in Oregon in 2014 (which he did as an active cancer patient) and the River Shannon in Ireland (150 miles) in 2017. He accomplished these feats of endurance to prove to fellow cancer patients that you don’t have to give up your dreams or your drive simply because you have received a diagnosis.
One of Dean’s greatest achievements, however, is chasing and catching the gorgeous fitness competitor, Bobbi Parker Hall, and falling in love again with a woman who is as beautiful on the inside as she is the outside.
Make sure to listen to Part One to learn more about Dean's story and how he is today.
