Oliver Rofix is a British adventurer and motivational speaker with a story that will inspire you.
“I’ve been given a second chance at life…”
From the first night of my admission to hospital for treatment of a rare leukaemia, I realised that a positive mental attitude is vital in helping people to face cancer.
This idea resonated with me throughout my illness. I came up with a project to rebuild and renovate an 18ft sailing boat to keep me positive and give me a focus when my life hung in the balance. I consider myself to be truly lucky to have survived, now I want to help others to fight illness too. After my recovery I began setting myself bigger challenges to help raise awareness and to support the charities and organisations that have helped me.
My driving force has always been my spirit of adventure and my passion to help others affected by cancer and its after-effects. My experiences have taught me never to give up and not to let mental or physical restraints get in the way of achieving my goals.
No matter what it is you want to do I truly believe that anyone can achieve anything. By telling people about my story and the journey I am on I aim to give others hope, the confidence not to give up, and inspire them to strive to achieve their dreams.
To date Oliver’s Travels has raised over £60,000 for charity and has knowingly recruited over 1500 new potential donors to the Anthony Nolan Trust Register. One of these people became a match for someone in need of a stem cell transplant.
