Then one day, he found out his mom had stage 4 stomach cancer, and all that just sort of...didn't matter anymore. Through six months of caring for her before she died, Garner came to realize that he needed more from life, and he set out to discover what that was. Traveling to China and spending hundreds of hours in training, he found a new path and tells the story of arriving on it in the book ...And I Breathed: My Journey From a Life of Matter to a Life That Matters. Hear what now inspires Garner each day and why he believes one doesn't need to lose their true self while discovering all they can be.
