My battle with heart issues began while snorkeling in Hawaii in September 2013 at the age of 49. In March of 2014 I underwent mitral valve replacement surgery. I went on to be diagnosed with cardiomyopathy in May 2014. Now in September of 2016 I have been placed on the heart transplant list with the University of Pittsburg Medical Center. See my site to hear my story and journey to my new heart. I hope to educate others about heart disease and the transplant process. Knowledge is power and saves lives!
