2015 Humana Lifestyle Change Award Winner!

John Rubben was awarded the Humana Lifestyle Change Award at the 2015 Kansas City Heart & Stroke Walk.

In November 2011, John Robben suffered a heart attack at age 47. Two stents were placed in his heart, and he was taking many different medications.

Soon after, john changed his diet to 100% vegan, added two canine members to his family and started walking – a lot.

John has lost 70 pounds, got permission to discontinue nearly all of his medications, and he feels like he’s in his 20’s again.

He hopes his story can help someone else.
