Shownotes

For today’s episode, you’ll hear from Travis Gibson, Principal QA Engineer based in Georgia. And his life story is a whirlwind – he went from being a healthy adult to discovering that he would need a double lung transplant. What he and multiple doctors thought was a minor illness, turned out to be something very serious. And after his transplant surgery, he woke up 2 months later with new lungs, but with a long road to recovery.

Years later he still feels the effects of his transplant – but despite everything – the shocking diagnosis, surgery, crazy side effects people don’t tell you about  – he still finds time to help and serve others. He’s taking everything he’s been through – and still going through – to contribute to society, and to help people who may be going through a similar journey.
