It never dawned on me that there could be anything wrong with my heart or vascular system.
As a nurse and a survivor, I encourage you to know your numbers.
When I got my diagnosis, it woke everyone up. Everyone is a lot more health conscious now.
I get to live a full life thanks to women’s heart disease research. New technology will be important when I need my next surgery.
Lifestyle makes a difference; prevention is possible. These choices don’t just happen. You have to make an effort every day.
I never put myself on my priority list.
Never in a million years did I think I would have heart disease. I’m not going quietly. I’m going red!
Don’t let a family history of cardiovascular disease be a family legacy.
Know your numbers. Don’t leave the hospital without an answer just because you’re exhausted or frustrated.
I had been this go-getter and my trajectory was always upward. I couldn’t believe this happened to me.
I didn’t know how to advocate for myself. Young people need to know that heart disease can happen to you.
