I am a SCAD SURVIVOR. The aftermath of my SCAD heart attack was a horrible, terrible time, a time when I was consumed by suffocating fear. Will this happen again? Why me?! I remember when it was difficult to utter the words, "I had a heart attack." However, now, I consider it a badge of honor. I survived. I am here.
I am so blessed that what came out of this experience was a new strength--a resilience--I never knew I had. SCAD has made me more compassionate. I can relate to my personal injury clients better, those who have lost their lives as they knew it in a blink of an eye (like I did). The experience has made me a better advocate. It has opened my eyes to possibilities and to focus on the things that are important. I am a SCAD advocate.
Because I am blessed to here, I am asking that if you, my friends and family, are considering birthday gifts or Christmas gifts for me (which, of course, I appreciate), you might instead consider a small donation to SCAD Research. Answers to the questions we all have about why this happens, the chances of it happening again, and how to best treat it.... those are the best gift families impacted by SCAD could ever receive. THANK YOU!!!
