We were fortunate enough to spend some time in the company of Alex McKinnon and the love of his life Teigan Power recently.
The beautiful couple are getting married in three weeks.
Alex is in the midst of writing his wedding speech and admits it will be a highly emotional day filled with tears.
It has been one helluva journey for Alex and Teigan - their strength through adversity is extraordinary.
It’s little wonder Alex is now in high demand as a motivational speaker.
“I really enjoy talking to schools, and I’ve done a lot of appearances through corporates," McKinnon said.
"I’m talking to different companies about change and transition - how to evolve and handle different situations.

McKinnon reminds us all of what is really important in life.
