Mick Miller had an incredible career coaching some of Asutralia's top athletes.
But after a close call with throat and neck cancer in 2013 he put most of that aside, packed his blender into a 1968 sky blue Volkswagen Beetle called 'The Rocket' and set off on a journey of discovery and recovery around Australia.
Travelling Australia Mick’s Way follows his journey and captures Mick’s daily adventures in the backdrop of the awe-inspiring Australian landscape. His story and photography is real, heartfelt and inspiring.
A portion from the sale of each book will be donated to help support cancer patients and their families post treatment via The Tomorrow Trust - helping bring some normality back into peoples lives who are living with, through and beyond cancer.
A coach to the stars --- With over twenty five years as an elite sports coach, Mick has seen it all. He's worked with elite athletes chasing Olympic glory, world champions, professional Rugby League teams, America's Cup campaigns, and up-and-coming youth champions. He's seen athletes through good times and bad, through victory and meltdown, through triumphant euphoria and heart-breaking despair. He's brought athletes back from career-threatening injury, rebuilt teams that were crumbling under pressure, and mentored his junior athletes through the challenges of growing up.
A life-threatening illness --- One of Mick’s biggest challenges was being diagnosed with throat and neck cancer in 2013 and going through the subsequent treatment- including a 70 day stay in hospital. Instead of sitting around playing the victim Mick embarked on a journey of discovery and recovery in his 1968 sky blue Volkswagen Beetle named “The Rocket” raising funds and awareness for post cancer recovery and has just finished circumnavigating Australia.
