I’m so grateful that I didn’t hide behind the ( permanent) surgical scars , live in denial or suffer in silence. I made a decision (a couple of years ago) to release the negative emotions ( in the hospital) & trust God with my life: 100%. Despite my health obstacles, I will continue to share my heart story, raise funds for medical research, plus help the community by providing healthy heart resources.
