In this conversation, Glenn shares his amazing 96-day experience in the hospital after getting COVID-19 and the complications that followed. And if it was not bad enough, as soon as he recovered, he came to find out that the fight was not over and he had stage 4 cancer.

Medical Disclaimer

As Glenn mentions in this podcast, he's betting his life on how he understands his health situation and what he should do to gain the healing he desires. He discusses failures and successes throughout his medical journey. The focus of this conversation is to learn about Glenn's story and the lessons he learned, not to discover the merit of his medical intervention argument. While we discuss his medical condition and various forms of treatment, the information provided should not be used for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease.
A powerful way to discover the truth is to deeply challenge our own assumptions of what we believe, seek out competing information and perspectives from the strongest people, groups, and institutions, and invite the strongest arguments against our own. A dialectic between the best arguments for and against something is how we can deeply understand all facets, and learn to discern what is most true, as we make the best decision we can.
