Two years ago, I became a member of The Support Network, an online support community dedicated to those who have experienced a heart event, heart disease, stroke or congenital heart defect as a survivor or caregiver. I’m so thankful for the resources available to help patients and caregivers, cope with the recovery process. On July 20th, 2015 , I traveled to the American Heart Association’s National Center located in Dallas, Texas, to attend Heart Valve Ambassador Training; totally AMAZING experience. As ambassadors, we work directly with the American Heart Association to raise awareness about heart valve disease resources for patients. So many people are suffering in silence and in need of emotional support. I thank God for the opportunity to help patients cope with their daily health obstacles, share my story of triumph and healing and promote heart awareness throughout the community.
It is easy to join the Support Network: membership is free, for additional information: visit www.heart.org/supportnetwork
