Empowering the Community

Reflections…

May 2010: My journey with the American Heart Association began; true  blessing.

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 : The American College of Cardiology (ACC) 65th Annual Scientific Session  :April 2016,:  Chicago, Illinois : I attended American Heart Association’s Scientific Session: November 2016: New Orleans, Louisiana: Georgia State Capitol , Gwinnett County Board Of Commissioners Meeting, DeKalb County Board of Commissioners Meeting, churches, health fairs , etc.

One of the important parts of  my recovery has been to educate and empower other heart patients about my story  of triumph and healing, encouraging them to track their symptoms in a journal, cultivate a strong relationship with their healthcare providers, suggesting heart-healthy recipes, connecting them to resources or even just being there to listen as they work through their own struggles.

PASSION PROJECT

In 2013, I created a collage of hearts for the purpose of honoring every person affected by heart disease and celebrate my recovery from four surgeries. I share the beautiful hearts  with area hospitals to bring encouragement to adult and pediatric heart patients.  To date more than one thousand collages have been decorated each February by schools, nonprofit groups and churches to represent what they’ve learned about heart health.

Sharing words of encouragement to anyone facing health obstacles:  pray daily,  count your blessings,  focus on positive thoughts  and to never, never give up.
