Today’s Testimony,

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.

Sharing One of My Favorite Quotes:  “I Wear Red …. Because I care”

Thanks for your support

Have a beautiful day
