Join us on Heart to Heart with Anna this week for another spotlight on Cardiac Athletes. Today we’re talking with athlete Lisa Johnson who went from training in gymnastics, Olympic weightlifiting and crossfit to heart surgery and finding out she had both a congenital defect and autoimmune disease. It’s a fascinating story about triumph, loss and struggle and Lisa is quite the heroine!

Lisa Johnson will be participating in the 2nd book in the Cardiac Athlete series by Lars Andrews.
