65. After facing death, quadruple amputee Alex Lewis really started living

1h 11m | Nov 15, 2023

Today, we are reairing Kimi's conversation with Alex Lewis. Alex is a quadruple amputee and one of the most hopeful and inspiring guests we've had on the show. When his episode aired, we had a huge reaction from the audience. People wrote to us talking about how hopeful and uplifted they felt.

Considering the heaviness of all that is happening in the world right now, we thought this was an opportunity to lay down that weight for an hour and revisit Alex's story and message.

*Rebroadcast* (originally aired 3/30/22)

He was given a 3% chance of survival. His partner was told to come in and say goodbye. But Alex Lewis wasn’t ready to go down without a flight. In this harrowing episode, Alex shares why he says “quadruple amputation is the best thing that has ever happened to him,“ plus the one piece of advice you must not forget no matter how bad you feel things are in your life.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How to recognize signs of escapism and depression.
  • Identifying Strep A in the body.
  • Navigating his decision between life and death.
  • The importance of focusing on what you’re fighting for.
  • The power of having a support system.
  • Learning to appreciate the present while looking forward to the future.
  • How your “why” can provide clarity to your meaning and purpose.
