Luke Soderling from "The Wheel" is one of the contestants in the Discovery Channel reality survivalist competition series. He is a plumber and firearms instructor from Gilbert, Minnesota.

Luke Soderling's kids mean everything to him. In 2013, when he was diagnosed with stage 3 thyroid cancer, he wasn't sure he'd still be around to see them grow up. But thanks to successful treatments, he now has a clean bill of health and a renewed passion to be the ultimate role model for his sons. Born and raised in Minnesota's Iron Range, Luke has always been an outdoorsman â€" camping, hiking, and hunting. Even as a master plumber and a firearms instructor, he still makes as much time as possible to spend time in nature with his buddies and with his sons. Now that he's active and back in action, Luke wants the opportunity to show his sons that their dad is back and stronger than ever.


After thyroid cancer threatened to take him away from his sons, Luke wants to be their ultimate role model and show them that if he can defeat cancer, he can defeat anything.
