Graeme Sutton was 50 years old before discovering he had a potentially life-threatening heart defect. Join us today as Graeme shares with Anna what it was like to discover that he had, not only a serious heart defect, but also a disease process which could cause him to have a stroke or die. Learn about how he had to handle this delicate situation and how he strove to regain his life and his passion for being a triathlete and even competing in an Ironman competition.
