Twenty-five inspiring and motivating stories about real people with real health interruptions.

Health Interrupted Podcast With Laura Kaeppeler Celebrates First Season

I’m thrilled to announce the conclusion of the Health Interrupted Podcast’s first season, featuring an interview with world-class ‘Soul Surfer’ Bethany Hamilton.

I co-host the podcast with my friend, celebrity fitness trainer Gina Lombardi, and together we have uncovered inspiring stories from real people discussing how they’ve overcome health interruptions in their lives.

Featuring guests like Clint Malarchuk (NHL goalie, tragic accident and suicide survivor and now mental health advocate), Stephani Victor (actress turned Paralympic Gold Medalist), Cory Smith (aka Miracle Man and survivor of four brain surgeries after a basketball injury), Bryan Anderson (American Veteran of the Iraq War and triple amputee), the finale celebrated the milestone 25th episode with great tips and an amazing Call to Action from Bethany Hamilton.

Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of determination, faith, and hope. At 13, Bethany lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark, which seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and had won her first national title within two years. In 2007, she realized her dream of surfing professionally, and since then, her story has been told in a New York Times best-selling autobiography and the 2011 film, Soul Surfer. You can also watch her documentary called UNSTOPPABLE on Netflix. Bethany is involved in numerous charitable efforts, including her own foundation, Friends of Bethany, which reaches out to amputees and youth, encouraging and offering hope to overcome through Jesus Christ. Using her platform as a professional athlete to promote living a fit and healthy lifestyle, she authored Body and Soul in 2014. Bethany’s latest project, Unstoppable, a surf documentary that showcases her as one of the best women surfers in the world, was released theatrically in the USA on July 12, 2019, accompanied by a photo book and a children’s book. Passionate about helping young women be unstoppable in life and faith, Bethany has launched a new website and online course for sharing content and facilitating connections. Her greatest joy is being a wife and mother, and she continues to touch and inspire lives globally as a professional surfer and motivational speaker.
