Bryan Donahue is a survivor, motivational speaker and author. His first book "On Borrowed Time" was recently published and written with Pulitzer Prize nominated author M. Rutledge McCall. When Bryan was a 22 year old U.S. Marine in perfect health, he was dealt a blow most would not recover from. His shocking diagnosis of a rare chronic liver disease that has no cure made him reevaluate everything he held sacred. Bryan's mental shift came when he was told he had months to live and looked at material and situational pieces of his life that he thought were important and fortunately realized that the important pieces of the puzzle were mostly the little things and the people around him. His book "On Borrowed Time, How I built a Life While Beating Death" and his motivational speaking engagements chronicle the transformation Bryan went through from the disease physically ravaging his body to the unbreakable mental state he needed to maintain in order to survive. He credits mental toughness in particular the power of positive thought for not only his survival, but for creating a superlative life that he lives to the fullest every day. Bryan along with M. Rutledge McCall have plans for additional books that dive deep into topics of mental toughness, communication with loved ones, the greatness of life, and the positive impact we can all have on one another.
