20: Living Out Loud with Lara Govendo

July 29, 2019

“When you have nothing left to lose, you have everything to gain.” These are the wise words of my dear friend, Lara Govendo.

During a recent conversation together, we journeyed through her experience of overcoming respiratory failure and a double lung transplant due to cystic fibrosis. This woman is a beautiful, enthusiastic overcomer and I can’t wait for you to hear her story! Let’s grab our coffee and learn about living out loud with Lara Govendo.

Get to know Lara:

Lara Govendo resides in Vermont (for now) as a wild, adventure enthusiast whilst holding a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. She writes about living out loud & develops educational programs to restore hope to those in need all over the country. After her double lung transplant in August 2017, you can now find Lara checking items off her life list: traveling solo on the regular, exploring national parks, and belly laughing with her loves. Passionate about connecting with like-minded people, you can find her online at: www.laragovendo.com and on Facebook and Instagram under the name “Lungs4Lovey” where she flies by the seat of her (no) pants.
