This “Surviving & Thriving” segment is presented by Florida Hospital. With the right kind of care and support and the right attitude, it’s possible to not only survive life’s greatest challenges but to thrive in the aftermath.
Paul Cardall is an internationally acclaimed pianist, producer and film composer. As an indie artist, he’s found great success without any major label support, and he’s finding it after battling a congenital heart defect for decades before getting a life-saving heart transplant.
Born with only half of a functioning heart, he was given just days to live. He defied medical expectations but it wasn’t easy. Paul takes us back to his childhood to describe how he had to overcome health issue after health issue and how having “optimistic” parents may have been his saving grace.
He explains how he found music and how he knew it would the thing he would do with his life. Plus, he takes us back to the scary time as he waited for a new heart.
