Finding The Will To Live Through Adversity

October 8, 2018

Cystic fibrosis is an often life-threatening illness that affects the lungs and pancreas. Laura Zellmer was diagnosed with the disease at only 16 months old. Despite the staggering 80% infant mortality rate at the time, Laura defied the odds and survived. Laura is 43 years old, married with a child of her own, and received a double lung transplant last year.

In this amazing conversation, you with learn:

  • How Laura psychologically dealt with her diagnosis
  • What inspires her to take chances in spite of her illness
  • How she has learned to appreciate what many take for granted
  • What it was like to wait for her double lung transplant
  • How she stays motivated in maintaining her health everyday.

Laura’s story has been a source of inspiration during my own health struggles with ulcerative colitis. Her determination to live life to the fullest is a lesson we all could benefit from.

I'm so excited to share this with you! 

 

SOME QUESTIONS I ASK LAURA:

  • Where did your propensity to risk come from?
  • How often do you think about the lung donor who saved your life?
  • Do you think you would be here today if your son didn’t give you a sense of purpose?
