|Ed Hearn knows about thrilling comebacks all too
well. In 1986, after eight trying years in the minor leagues, Ed
realized his childhood dream of playing Major League Baseball. As a
rookie with the New York Mets, they captured the World Series with a
come-from-behind victory. A year later, Ed was traded to the Kansas
City Royals, expecting to reap the rewards of a professional contract.
Instead, he suffered a serious shoulder injury. He spent the next three
years fighting his way back, only to have to walk away for the game and career
he loved. Little did Ed Hearn know, the physical obstacles ahead were far
more devastating than the shoulder injury.
Less than six months after his baseball career ended,
Ed was diagnosed with three potentially life-threatening health
conditions. He was reduced to a man who could barely care for
himself. Ed hung on, through, and used these physical
challenges to make the most incredible come-back of his life. Today, after a life-saving kidney transplant, a successful
bout with cancer, the aid of a breathing machine each night, a
costly IV treatment once a month and up to 35 pills per day, Ed
Hearn has come back to live a life that is truly an inspiration.
As an author and speaker, his courage, faith and determination speak
volumes as we face life's challenges.
Ed Hearn is entertaining, captivating and motivating , but what makes
him truly unique is his genuine desire to empower and uplift those around
him. His inspiring, real-life message is sure to have a lasting
impact on your audience.
|Whenever possible, I like to make myself readily available
to share these special "up-close" moment. Whether
it's taking photos with my new friends and the World Series trophy
or joining in on a round of golf with the group, I consider these to
be all part of my job in helping to make your event one they will
remember for a long time to come.
Until then, keep swing for life's fences!

- We may face no bigger challenge today than that of steering our
children through a maze of modern-day temptations. As parents,
we are often frustrated by our children as they ignore our
guidance and succumb to the influence of today's so-called role
models such as athletes, musicians, and entertainers. Ed
uses the platform he has been given as a former professional
athlete to reinforce ideas parents want their children to
hear. One of life's true champions, Ed Hearn exposes young
people to a positive, uplifting message that will benefit them always..
|"The road to success seldom climbs straight up
the hill, but few go through the valleys that Ed has
experienced. He shares his personal struggle, the soaring joys
and wrenching pain with a message that should inspire each of us to
achieve new heights."

programs we have ever had. Even the women thought it was the
best so far (for us, this is a first - our ladies never like speakers
from the sports world)!"
