4 year Valversary

Post by Rachel August on Wed Jul 15, 2015 11:23 am

Today is my 4 year anniversary from OHS!!!! Like many others here, I am more than grateful for the second chance I got at life and so very honored to know y'all here in this group. As I always tell people that my medical team saved my life, but my HEART group showed me how to LIVE that life!!!

Thanks again to each of you here, for pushing aside the fear/stigmas, for educating others on the importance of exercise, and for showing the medical community that heart patients can be and are athletes!!!!

Looking forward to seeing many of you in West Virginia this October

Congratulations Rachel!! You've packed a lot of living into the last 4 years and you've touched so many others along the way. You've inspired us here at HEART, your friends in Global Heroes, and even undiagnosed heart patients through your heart advocacy... I'd say 4 years very well spent!

You are a true inspiration!!! Congratulations on another milestone in your wonderful life.

You are still looking beautiful in that picture! I think with that valve replacement, they also gave you the fountain of youth!!!

Looking forward to seeing you again in WV!
