Mr. Piscatella knows more than a little about commitment and defying the odds. At age 32, a successful businessman with a young family, he underwent coronary bypass surgery. The prognosis was not good with doctors predicting he would not live to be 40. His philosophy: "You can't change the cards you were dealt, but you can change the way you play them." And he did. He recently celebrated his 31st anniversary of that heart surgery. He's living proof that with motivation and the right information, living a balanced lifestyle for optimal health is possible.
