"I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer, at just 20 years old"
A brief look back in time
Lachlan began training as a Public Speaker in 2016. He felt he had a story to share. Above all, a story of gratitude, resilience, and self-belief. It’s a powerful and uplifting story of a young man who defied the odds of his cancer diagnosis. He faced his life’s challenges with an attitude from which we can all learn.
Lachlan was a healthy non-smoker of only 20 years of age. So his diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer was completely unexpected. He was told to expect an outcome that would have crushed the strongest of souls. But Lachlan made a conscious choice to approach his circumstances and life with positivity.
As a well-received speaker at events and functions, Lachlan talks about his diagnosis and the effect it had on him. More importantly, he tells how he overcame it and of his gratitude for the support he received along the way. Gratitude especially to the women in his life, his Mum, Bev and his partner, Connie.
It’s impossible to hear Lachlan speak and not come away feeling inspired. His audience regularly comment on how grateful, and positive they feel afterwards, in regard to what their own lives have in store for them.
