John Trabue was once one of the best swimmers in the country, an 11-time All-American at Clarion University.

He has a successful business and a beautiful family. But now, Traube also is dealing with a type of cancer that almost always wins, stage IV glioblastoma.

Instead of giving in, John is going back to his roots: swimming. He is creating awareness and raising money by swimming with a program called Swim Across America. John and his team will each swim 2.4 miles at a lake in Innsbruck in August.
