In June of 2000, Garrett Miller was diagnosed with brain cancer. He was 5 years old.
Days after his diagnosis, doctor’s removed a golfballsized tumor from the back of the little boy’s head.
Garrett’s father, Eric Miller, was told that his son only had a 50% chance of living for another 5 years.
The surgery left Garrett blind, mute and paralyzed. His parents put him on a ventilator and counted the days they had left with their son.
In 2001, one year after his brain surgery and after 6 months of intensive treatment, Garrett crossed the finish line of his first ever triathlon. Instead of waiting for tragedy to take Garrett, his dad encouraged him to do the things he wanted to do. To live life in the moment because none of us really knows how long we have left on this earth.
He bought a tandem bike, and before Garrett could even see or walk again they were pushing the pedals together.
That was fourteen years ago.
Since then, Garrett has competed with his father in more than a dozen triathlons, as well as one on his own. His eyesight, though not fully restored, has returned to the point that he can see blurry objects and shapes. He is still considered legally blind but can do things the doctors said were impossible.
He is, without exaggeration, a walking miracle.
Garrett found his calling inspiring and touching the lives of thousands of others through his triathlons.
Despite the obstacles and the “impossibles”, Garrett turned his tragedy into a miracle.
He found his calling.
A calling is that thing that you can’t not do, an answer to the ageold question, “What should I do with my life?”
And for centuries, people thought of it as something reserved for an elite group of people, for those special few who were lucky enough to be called.
