(ELGIN, IL – October 10, 2017) Renowned author, magician and cancer survivor Jim Munroe filled the room with laughter, tears and amazement at Judson University’s third annual World Leaders Forum Inspirational Series on Monday evening. In 2009, Munroe was one of the most sought-after magicians in the world, known for his bewildering acts of illusion that left audiences yearning for more. After receiving a harrowing leukemia diagnosis and being given only months to live, Munroe beat the odds thanks to a lifesaving bone marrow donation from a young Wisconsin woman.

“I’m either a statistical anomaly, or there is something bigger going on behind the scenes,” Munroe told the audience. “This magician,” he said pointing to himself, “believes he’s experienced a miracle.”

Munroe’s bone marrow donor, Jennell Jenney, joined Munroe on stage at the event to talk about the importance of bone marrow donations. Representatives from Be the Match, manager of the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world, were in the audience. Be the Match credits Munroe for 14,000 new registrants – including 57 matches to date.

Munroe’s performance, the MAZE, is an innovative approach to entertainment that immerses audience members in Munroe’s story of survival. Through mystery and magic, Munroe challenges people to go behind the scenes of our human existence to search for the truth. He is the author of The Charlatan: The Skeptical, Mysterious, Supernatural True Story of a Christian Magician, and a regular speaker at conferences, corporations and events around the world. He lives outside of Dallas, Texas, with his wife and two children.

“Not only was Jim Munroe entertaining and inspiring, he also performed illusionary magic tricks that that made everyone’s jaws drop to the floor,” said Judson University President Dr. Gene Crume. “We are grateful to Jim for perfectly fulfilling the mission of the World Leaders Forum Inspirational Series.”
