How to handle the tough times.

Ryan West has been through the ringer. He was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa and joined the Navy right after high school. He was an aircraft carrier Flight Deck Director on the U.S.S Abraham Lincoln and while the Navy allowed him to see the world, it’s also where his health battle would begin.

He was diagnosed with a pituitary brain tumor. Then also diagnosed with Acromegaly, a very rare and debilitating hormone disorder. He managed to get through all this and now Ryan has started the Revealing Healing podcast and a blog where he shares his story and the stories of others who have endured incredibly difficult events and how they managed to get through them.

In this episode, we talk about how adversity forces us to find strengths and talents we never knew we had, and more.
