I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, global humanitarian, community resource  advocate, American Heart Association Heart Valve Ambassador  & heart disease  survivor. A  couple of years ago , I received a new heart valve plus a pace maker. I was born with an abnormal heart valve  and developed symptoms at age 42.  I notified my doctor, a  test was ordered then I received a mechanical valve. Four days later I developed heart blockage . The doctor informed my family that I would need a pace maker to help my heart function. A year later,   my third  surgery took place  :  pace maker revision. My fourth surgery took place on December 21st, 2015; I received new batteries  in my pace maker.

I’ve travelled locally & out of state advocating for the uninsured & sharing my story of survival;  at the American Heart Association’s Lobby Day: Washington, D.C.(in 2013); You’re The Cure Advocate , American Heart Association’s National Center: Dallas, Texas ( 2015): Recently selected:  National  Volunteer Ambassador: newly established  Heart Valve Ambassador Team ; Georgia State Capital ,Gwinnett County Board Of Commissioners meeting, DeKalb County Board of Commissioners meeting, churches, etc

 

I give God all the honor and praise for what is taking place in my life.

Thanks for caring

Have a lovely day

Kimberly
