Real Lives Less Ordinary is an intimate series featuring everyday people who have an extraordinary story to tell. These stories are of astonishing achievements, triumph over adversity, kindness to others, a life transformation and more. These are compelling and inspirational tales that range from a young woman diagnosed with terminal breast cancer determined to remain relentlessly upbeat; to the student who rallied an army of volunteers when his city was left devastated by an earthquake; the first woman to summit Everest without oxygen; and the hip hop dancer who broke onto the world stage from humble beginnings on YouTube. You only live once, so make it count!
