“Oxygen Free” are the best two words Diann has ever heard. That was the goal Diann set for herself the day her doctor diagnosed her with a lung disease in January 2014. She was told she would need supplemental oxygen for the rest of her life, 24 hours a day, and that she only had two to five years to live. Diann refused to believe this and entered the CardioPulmonry Rehab program on January 29, 2014. It was in rehab that the staff helped Diann gain her life back with exercise and strength training. After completing rehab, Diann transitioned into our 8 week LiveWell program where she gained more strength, stamina and most importantly confidence to continue exercising on her own. She also pursued additional medical consultation and refused to accept a bleak diagnosis, Diann followed the recommendations of her doctors and maintained her exercise and continued to improve. As of August 18, 2014 Diann is a member of The Center who uses the treadmill for 30 minutes every day, does not need to use any supplemental oxygen, and is looking forward to many more vibrant years of life.
