How Garrett Lombardi Saved a Woman’s Life Simply by Showing Up

How Garrett Lombardi Saved a Woman’s Life Simply by Showing Up

TRIGGER WARNING: This episode is of a sensitive nature and deals with suicide.

Garrett Lombardi was a 20 year old pre-medicine student from San Diego on a date with his girlfriend when a day full of unexpected circumstances and new plans turned into a pivotal moment in his life, and the woman he would that day save. Garrett Lombardi and his girlfriend stumbled upon a struggling woman at a cliff's edge, and made choices in the moment that ended in the woman contemplating suicide coming away from that ledge unharmed. Garrett says this was God acting through him. Whether you're a person of faith or not, the incredible humanity and reaction to a situation he'd not ever been in before is awe-inspiring. 

Garrett is now 21, and with a year removed from the situation, steps into the Inner Circle to share his experience of that day, what it brought to his life, how it changed his faith, and how it reenforced his choice to enter the medical field. 

Since Garrett is a medical student who is very dedicated to his studies, he doesn't have a product or service we'd usually send you to, but here is an article from 2018 detailing his own journey with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease, which really shines a light on his character, optimism, and determination.
