“A Change of Heart” ♥ – Prednisone for Heart Transplant

She almost died while training for a triathlon 20 years ago and now, after her heart transplant, she’s finally completing it next month.

Meet Prednisone Warrior, Kristy!

In my interview with her, she dropped wisdom bombs left and right!

No wonder she chose the title of her book (being published TODAY!) as, “A Change of Heart.”

What to Discover in this video:

  • Kristy’s Prednisone Story
  • What inspired her to write her book
  • What other drugs does she take aside from prednisone
  • Her advice for heart transplant patients


My Prednisone Side Effects Cartoon helped author Kristy Sidlar in her prednisone journey. She published it in “Change of Heart,” her heart transplant memoir.
I can’t believe something I created is in a book!

She was loving her life as a healthy, young professional and aerobics instructor. But one day while teaching a fitness class, she collapsed – and spiraled into a life-threatening health crisis. Kristy needed a new heart.

Now, in her gripping memoir, Change of Heart: My Journey of Transplantation, Revelation & Transformation, she provides fascinating and inspiring insight into her extraordinary survival story that chronicles her frightening heart failure—and her triumph over what could have ended her vibrant life far too early.

In engaging vignettes, Kristy takes you on an intimate journey as her failing health prompts doctors to put her on the heart transplant list. Then, miraculously, a donor heart becomes available. Page by page, Kristy takes you through her death-defying experience as she courageously—and optimistically—endures surgery and recovery.
