Bertram was 43 years old a runner and swimmer trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. Regardless of that fact doctors informed him that the chest pain he was having would require 6-way bypass surgery.
(Note: Bill Clinton had quadruple (4-way) and David Letterman had quintuple (5-way) bypass surgery.) Thanks to his then fiance’/now wife, Bertram was able to find the strength to endure the surgery and get healthy again. Listen to Bertram’s story below or read about it here.
