Told by 2 different specialists that he only had 12 months to live in 2009 due to a rare debilitating neuromuscular condition that was causing severe muscle atrophy to the extent he could not even do up shirt buttons or even put his hands in his pockets! Sounds bad we know but Brad manages this condition daily is still proving people wrong to this day and he has been called a "medical anomaly" He surfs, he climbs mountains and even does crazy things like "Tough Mudder" just to push himself. This from a guy who could't even hold a pen or walk properly in 2009!
Plus just to make things interesting he has titanium clips in both eyes, and totally blind in one from an accident he had in 1987 when he was only 17!
He has since become a world renowned comedy magician and one of Brad Manuel's specialties is "Perception" : What you perceive as Impossible, he makes Possible right before your eyes... As an Inspirational Keynote Speaker he entertains and inspires by using his unique skill set to engage and motivate the audience with some amazing magic and great humour to keep the presentation from getting too "heavy" like a lot of keynotes can be… Along the way he shares some unbelievable challenges and speed bumps he has had to overcome personally to be where he is today. “Nothing Is Impossible - Unless YOU Make It Impossible”
