In 2018, Paul Coghlan was given less than 10% chance to survive AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia), but he lived to tell his story. Paul has no doubt that staying positive and focused saved his life. 23 sessions of Intensive chemotherapy within the first 9 days after admission and a total of 6 months in hospital gave him the belief and determination to fight. Now, he is ready to inspire and motivate others to reach their goals as his way to give something back to those who may struggle to believe in themselves and their adversities.
