We’re In This Together

At times, heart attack survivors can feel vulnerable or afraid. They may not feel quite like themselves. But there is hope. By taking one day at a time, listening to their bodies and relying on their healthcare teams, they can move forward in their lives.

AstraZeneca created Survivors Have Heart to provide support for the survivor community and give voice to the emotional experience of life after a heart attack. Here you’ll find heart attack survivors’ stories, helpful information about recovery and caregiving, and additional resources from advocacy group websites.

BOB HARPER’S HEART ATTACK SURVIVOR STORY

As a health and fitness expert and a best-selling author, Bob Harper inspired audiences nationwide to get fit. He was the picture of health. Bob never considered that a heart attack could happen to him. But it did.

Today, Bob is passionate about another kind of training: emotional recovery. While changes to his diet and exercise routine are an important part of his physical recuperation, Bob credits further education with helping him evolve his mindset and believes this plays an equally important role.
