When Maitland developed severe breathing difficulties in his mid-thirties, a lung transplant became his only option for survival. In addition to this aquatic and mountaineering exploits in the ten years since his lung transplant, Maitland describes talking to awe-inspiring individuals, reflects on organ donation from the unique perspective of his donor family, probes exciting advances in scientific research, and considers post-transplant physical exercise regimens.

Swimming Through Adversity provides an inspiring source of self-effacing, often humorous, information for anyone faced with a seemingly insurmountable life challenge.

“Straight forward and compelling with an inspiring and incredible insight to the journey.”

Jeffrey R. Goldstein

President and Founding Member, Lung Transplant Foundation

“Swimming is one of the few sports in which we willingly put ourselves in an environment where our breathing is restricted. Prepare to be moved and inspired by his story of love, hope and determination.”
