Supermom and journalist, Mona Shand spends a great deal of time and energy running her three kids to and from dance class, cross country and swim practice, while juggling her career as producer and correspondent for the media industry and teaching aerobics.

Dr. Gibson assured her that it would not be the end of her active lifestyle, but rather the start of a new, pain-free life. He was right.
Less than six weeks after surgery, Mona competed in a one-mile open water swim race with her oldest son, Noah.
