Patrick Bisher was a Navy SEAL, but attaining the elite rank wasn’t his only achievement. His incredible life story started with a childhood often spent in leg braces and pain, and has taken him on a journey of discovery he wants to share with others.

Bisher has a degenerative hip condition called avascular necrosis, which wasn’t caught early enough to prevent him from losing his femur. Doctors believed the loss would prevent him from walking, but he overcame the disability.

Bisher joined the military and trained as a Navy SEAL. Then a severe hip injury he received during a parachuting accident almost crippled him. He overcame that injury, too, and went on to serve as a member of SEAL Team Seven, seeing combat in Iraq.

Bisher tells his story in “No Surrender,” a book that summarizes the trials in his life, and includes inspiring lessons about overcoming doubt and adversity. “No Surrender” details the challenges Bishel faced becoming a SEAL, then pushing past the physical and mental hurdles placed on him after the parachuting accident, to eventually re-entering the service after rehab.

Amazingly, he was placed with the same SEAL unit he’d trained with.

The Christian author appeared on Fox and Friends Saturday, discussing his life story and the book.
