“You go through hell to get to heaven. And I had to. And that’s what I was able to do and that’s why I’m so motivated,” Sneed explained.

It was a spring day when Logan was on his way to the gym.

“I started FaceTiming, my ex-girlfriend at the time, I was in a very good mood, I was ready for the day. And then, boom, I started like, busting my words,” Sneed recalled the day he changed his life. “I had a seizure while driving. And he saw how the whole seizure went.”

The next 24 hours for Sneed changed lives. Doctors told her she had an egg-sized mass in her brain and needed surgery that same week to remove it, but the result did not look good. Doctors told him he could die, and if he survived, his quality of life would not be the same.

Two weeks after surgery, he was told he had stage four glioblastoma, a rare form of cancer with a 22% survival rate, according to the American Cancer Society.

“In those two weeks after the diagnosis, I wanted to die. I didn’t know what to do. I thought it was useless. Occupying time, space, money and energy,” Sneed said.

But he had a change of mindset. He followed his mentor’s advice and tried a new diet. Logan attributes his longevity to the low-carb, high-fat diet known as Keto.

“They were expecting me to be basically dead, and it’s been five years. There’s nothing. So there’s always an answer to a problem.”

His response is controversial to the medical community. Some studies show that eating Keto lifestyle can help with treatment, but doctors say more research is needed.

Whether the diet works or not, Logan’s message remains the same: don’t give up. Today he is an author, a successful entrepreneur, and a motivational speaker.

The young entrepreneur is using his health challenges to help others transform his financial situation. Help them create their own online coaching business.

“I think the most important thing is to discover yourself and optimize your health. If you don’t feel good, you won’t perform well.”

He says all his success is due to cancer.

“We all have something we’re going through, and you can let me control you or you can control it, you know, and that’s my motto I have to follow.”

He calls his diagnosis the worst and best day of his life.
