NEW BOOK – UP: Getting Up is the Key to Life

A Story of Inspiration

Hope and Insight into the Extraordinary Live of an Ordinary Man Living as a C6 Quadriplegic

CHICAGO – Thirty-four years ago, Chicagoan Brian Swift’s neck was broken while playing football with his friends on the sunny, chilly day after Christmas, 1979, at the age of seventeen. As he found the courage and strength to recover, graduate from high school, earn his college degree, and earn his Juris Doctor degree as a quadriplegic, he also found his purpose: to achieve more than expected, and to aspire to the best he can be.

Up: Getting Up is the Key to Life is the creation of the author in which he shares his personal paradigm for mental, emotional, and spiritual recovery and facing the challenges of life as quadriplegic. It is the author's hope to inspire those with similar injuries and give hope to their medical caregivers, family, and loved ones.

About the Author

Swift has lived as a C6 quadriplegic and was nominated by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation as one of the Top Ten Dads on Wheels in 2013. 

The father of three adopted children and a husband of over 24 years, Brian developed his strategy of success, CIA: Commitment, Integrity, and Attitude.  With his engaging style and practical wisdom, Brian will leave you invigorated to face your own struggles with hope, faith, and purpose!
