Side by Side with Connor McKemey.
In this episode, Dr. Nido Qubein speaks with Connor McKemey. At just 13-years-old, McKemey was burned over 90% of his body with third-degree burns and given less than a 1% chance of survival after a backyard explosion. After three months in a medically-induced coma, nearly two years of painful rehabilitation, and more than 100 surgeries over a decade, he emerged triumphantly to not only to walk again, but live his best life. He went on to play high school and Division I collegiate lacrosse at High Point University. He then embarked on a career in coaching and managing an elite university lacrosse program. McKemey’s compelling message of courage and strength resonates with audiences long after an event is over.
