Description

After being diagnosed with a rare genetic condition that deteriorates muscle, Cara E. Yar Khan was told she'd have to limit her career ambitions and dial down her dreams. She ignored that advice and instead continued to pursue her biggest ambitions. In this powerful, moving talk, she shares her philosophy for working on the projects that matter to her most -- while letting courage and fear coexist. Watch for heart-stopping, vertigo-inducing footage of a trip that shows her living her theory to the full.

After losing my husband to cancer 10 months ago and being married for over 50 years we go into a shell and find it hard to enjoy life. again. Thank you for the fantastic video. Cara, you're a great inspiration to all. Keep pushing forward and enjoying your life.
