After being diagnosed with end-stage heart and kidney failure in 2009, Bill later spent 70 days in the Intensive Care Unit of a Chicago hospital waiting for the gift of life. While he waited, Bill wrote a journal each day with the hope of someday creating a book that would serve as a support system to anybody who was ill. That book later became SWIM: A Memoir of Survival, an international seller that has aided thousands in overcoming the mental battle of various illnesses. Bill later went on to become a patient advocate and sought-after speaker who uses his story to inspire thousands each year.
