About

I am a SCAD Survivor! In Oct. 2015 I came close multiple times to losing my life. I suffered a major heart attack & I was rushed for immediate surgery to install a stent. I was released 2 days later on my birthday & within 2 days of my release I suffered my 2nd heart attack. I had emergency double bypass surgery. SCAD-spontaneous coronary artery dissection-a special kind of heart attack that effects mainly young healthy women. I was hospitalized for a month which included 2 lung fluid removals. I completed cardiac rehab & months of physical therapy. In Oct. 2017 I was re-hospitalized after falling down a flight of stairs with chest pains. Since then I have been diagnosed with FMD -fibromuscular dysplasia, a rare medical condition which is believed to have caused my SCAD. If I can offer any words of advise it is to live life each day & be in the moment. Appreciate who & what you have in your life. Be grateful & feel blessed…
