Scars Tell a Story … the One’s You Can See, and the One’s You Can’t!

Scars make us who we are. They speak to us, and say you’re strong, they are a testament to bravery, and not a sign of weakness. Scars are signs of survival and endurance leaving us stronger and more resilient, more equipped to face the present. They tell a story. Sometimes a story that is hard to hear. The scars on my chest, the beating of my heart fosters my appreciation for life- these are the few things that matter. It is beautiful to live, really live, and to have the marks to prove it. A testament to inner strength.  Living and being a...

American Heart Month!

February is American Heart Month. As we come close to “National Wear Red Day,” 2016, I am reminded of how much every second counts. Just like a birthday or anniversary, it is a reminder to tap the brakes on our busy lives and pay attention to someone that matters to us each and every day. It’s our time to stop and thank the legions of individuals who have taken it upon themselves to support and care for someone with heart disease, including loved ones, physicians and nurses who deliver the highest of care, and researchers who strive to...

Seeing Kids Smile!

Bringing hope and comfort to the littlest children, critically and chronically ill who are having their hearts repaired and recovering from surgery at Mattel Children’s Hospital, UCLA.  Thank you, Dr. Levi and Dr. Perens for delivering hope during some of the most difficult cases, transforming and saving kids lives, and for giving children the gowns and blankets when they return from surgery while they endure lengthy hospital stays; each one hand-made with love.  It’s a very scary time for children and their families with many kids needing...

Together We Can Move Mountains

It may be a figure of speech but when you join hearts and hands with those who care, anything is possible.  I have never drifted through life, I am a determined individual; when I know what I want, I go after it, sew the seeds of success, and work hard to achieve it.  Going with the flow of life just isn’t a part of who I am.  You’ll usually find me looking for challenges, seeking ways to make positive change and diving into unknown situations.  Embracing a new journey into the unknown excites me!  I am driven by 3 philosophies;...

A Hand Full of Kindness and a Heart Full of Love

I want to give a shout-out to the wonderful staff at REI, especially one lady in particular who went one step above and beyond delivering great customer service.  Not only that but, she left me with a smile, big and radiant, and with a heart full of gratitude.  I went to the store to purchase my first pair of biking shoes with clips; the ones that allow you to go the distance.  Having never used them before and with all the choices that are available, I went armed with questions.  Being my first purchase, I was a little apprehensive because...

Thank You RHF Sponsors!

03/08/2014  Today brings mixed emotions.  It’s time for the Annual Heart Run/Walk.  I am ever so proud of our 10-yr old son, Dylan.  He has walked by my side every year since he was 5-yrs old and since my cardiac arrest.  Never once complains or ask why he has to be up at the crack of dawn to walk miles; he just knows this day has special meaning and we both rejoice in it.  This morning we will be walking for all those that are defying the odds, those that cannot walk, and those that we honor.  I am humbled by the love and support of...

Central Park–Getting an AED into the Heart of New York City

Quite honestly, I did not know where to start having never been to Central Park.  All I knew was that it was of a large scale and that we needed to find a secure location for the AED.
