“I have heart disease myself. In 2005, I kept experiencing a rapid heart rate, fatigue, and shortness of breath. My symptoms were persistent. The doctor gave me some pills, but no fix. I was stuck with my doctor visits because I knew something was still wrong. My heartbeat goes below 60 and above 120. I had to get a pacemaker. I don’t want anyone to have to experience what I experienced.”
Virginia Hearts In Action encourages health awareness in our community. We work in partnership with other women and health organization. Get in touch with us if you are interested in supporting our advocacy.
