Today's special guest, Jeff Wagner, entrepreneur and motivational speaker, shares with us how he has overcome cancer and paralysis of his legs. He continues to be an inspiration to many and is a very active member of the Tampa community. Jeff's mantra is to "Always Finish Strong."
Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in 2003, Wagner began receiving treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center. In 2007, he was matched with a bone marrow donor and received a stem cell transplant. He has needed over a 100 units of blood from the Florida Blood services, 1,000+ chemotherapy treatments, dozens of surgeries, and more. Although, he is now paralyzed from the chest down, he remains cancer free, and Wagner’s cancer fight has sparked his enthusiasm to get more people to register for the National Bone Marrow Program. Through his passion in "Believing to Always Finish Strong," Wagner and his German donor that saved his life, are encouraging hundreds to attend a “Be The Match” bone marrow donor or blood drive throughout the Tampa Bay area.
