A couple of months after “ Living My legacy Now” article was published ( see the link listed below the picture: September 2013),
God placed the desire in my heart to create the “ Traveling Collage” and it keeps growing; section two,work in progress.
The purpose of the collage: to celebrate my recovery from heart valve replacement & two pace maker surgeries plus honor every woman, man & child affected by heart/stroke disease.
Sharing Words Of Encouragement; Never Give Up on Your Dreams: ask God to order your steps, focus on your blessings & surround yourself with happy & positive people who can lift you up to the next level.
I would like to thank my beautiful family, wonderful neighbors & friends for believing in my dream.
Special Recognition: To all of the churches , students, teachers, schools, non-profit organizations, family, high school classmates; BHS Class of 84, neighbors & friends who donated the beautiful hearts for sections 1 & 2, Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation, & Gwinnett Citizen Community Newspaper entire staff.
Recently, I became a member of the American Heart Association’s Support Network. I’m grateful for another opportunity to connect with heart/stroke patients throughout the country & share my story of healing.Please feel free to share the information below with your family & friends.

FYI: American Heart Association’s Mission: “Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.”
One of the reasons why I share my story of survival: because so many people are suffering on different levels.At the beginning of my journey ( after I returned home from the hospital in 2009), I was afraid to talk about the surgical procedures. I thank God for answering my prayers, giving me the courage to help heart patients & their families.
By using my gift of service, I’ve experienced so many opportunities with the support from The American Heart Association’s wonderful staff members to advocate for the uninsured heart patients, provide community resources etc. while coping with my daily health obstacles.
God continues to send unexpected blessings my way & I’m so grateful.
To my loving husband, beautiful children, amazing family, church, neighbors & friends …
Thanks for taking the time to care.
Have a wonderful day
Sharing Words of Encouragement to anyone coping with health issues…
You are not alone: Connect with God on a daily basis, focus on your blessings, & never give up.
