Two heart surgeries and unstoppable

Fitness enthusiast Robyn Cairney was shocked when a cough during exercise led doctors to discover a serious heart condition at age 17.

“I was doing some fitness tests at college and after the mile run, I was coughing. It was something that always happened and I just thought it was normal,” she tells This Is MedTech. “The coach thought that it might be asthma, so I went to the doctor who listened to my chest and heard a heart murmur.”
