In this last episode before Christmas, Tom brings you something a little bit different. A story you might have missed, that's so life affirming you can't help but feel grateful for what you already have and the incredible things you're yet to do. Jonathan Acott is not afraid of a challenge; he's run ultra-marathons, scaled mountains, he's swam lakes, cycled hundreds of miles and is now planning to join the Seven Continents Club, with a marathon on every one. But Jonathan has also lived with Cancer for over a decade, surviving its devastating effects 6 times over. Unsurprisingly, his body and his brain have been to the darkest of places, but his determination to remake and rebuild has led him to achieve the extraordinary.
**Content Warning: Now, this episode explores themes that are not suitable for everyone. There is strong language throughout, as well as references to suicide, addiction, self-harm, and depression**
