A victor over life's challenges since an early age; at 6 weeks old Dottie was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and doctors told her parents not to expect her to live past 2 years of age. Then, when Dottie reached 2, doctors told her parents she would not make it to first grade. Now at 44, Dottie Lessard is one ferocious athlete with an insatiable appetite for life and she has every intention in competing in athletics and in life at the highest level possible. She credits her courage and strength to her strong and unwavering faith in God. In 1994, she was presented with the opportunity to step into the life she always envisioned for herself. The opportunity, according to her doctor was a 50/50 chance at surviving a relatively new procedure: a double-lung transplant. All she heard was a 50% chance of living the life she visualized herself thriving in. 17 years later Dottie is in the best shape of her life, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

I was fortunate to interview Dottie for this week’s Step Into Your Power Podcast and it is something I highly recommend listening to if you, or someone you know, is going through a challenge.  Dottie’s faith, will to live and desire to constantly improve herself, despite the odds, is something that everyone can benefit from listening to.  Dottie has truly triumphed against the odds.

Listen to Dottie's most amazing journey and life of a true champion.
