    by: Matt Jones

    Matt Jones, went from being a three-time cancer conqueror, to relearning how to walk, to surviving a bone marrow transplant, to completing eight marathons on eight continents and yes that includes Antarctica! Matt was diagnosed with cancer on September 11, 2002. After spreading to the fluid in his brain doctors did not think he would live. Hall of Fame baseball player and World Series Champion, George Brett said, “Matt is a true champion and his story inspires others to be a true champion.”Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton said, “Matt Jones has done what anyone would consider impossible. Conqueror. Overcomer. Champion. Superhuman.” Matt uses his story of overcoming insurmountable odds to inspire those in human resources to achieve greater victory during these times of change and uncertainty.
