Bob Goodman was the picture of good health. His father died of a heart attack at the age of 57, when Bob was still a child. He knew that if he wanted to live a long, healthy life, it would be necessary to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Bob’s daily routine included plenty of physical activity, including participating in a number of marathons.
However, several months ago Bob was diagnosed with a rare condition called sarcoidosis that was affecting his heart. He underwent a heart transplant in November 2013.
Just 5 months after his operation, Bob is recovering and decided that he wanted to use his experience to give back. He is an active advocate on the You’re the Cure network and a member of the Government Relations Advisory Board. Bob wants to share his story with others and spread his message about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
