Back to Life with Leilani Graham

On today’s episode of The WoMed, the two Danielles speak with Leilani Graham (@leilanirgraham) about her powerful journey as a four-time cardiac arrest and open-heart surgery survivor and heart transplant recipient. At the age of just thirteen, Leilani discovered her heart wasn’t like those around her – she would have to fight to survive through countless challenges, and this journey would be lifelong. Leilani and The WoMed discuss the best ways to advocate for yourself as a patient, how to improve the future of healthcare in general, and what spirituality and purpose look like for someone who has been brought back to life several times. Leilani’s Nurse D Energy moment is a powerful one, as is her new career path that allows her to help others in similar positions.
