As he stared at the end of his life when diagnosed with cancer, Jonathan was hit with the fact he was not the man he thought he was - He had become the kind of man he would not want to be near. Two remarkable people appeared and taught him life's greatest lessons, and in that started him on the road to redemption that saved his soul and saved and his life. that started him on the road to redemption that saved his soul and saved and his life.
This television journalist seemed to have everything, until that everything included cancer. Jonathan writes about his intimate journey with a deadly disease. And he also tells a bigger story about how the disease launched him on a pilgrimage to become a better man. He uses his gifts, as a raconteur to show how some of the answers about how to survive his cancer were revealed in his quest for redemption.
He published his first book in 2017 – The Other Side of Ego. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
