Heart Attack at the Age of 36: Lisa’s Survivor Story

Heart Attack at the Age of 36: Lisa’s Survivor Story

At the age of 36, and just 3 years after my husband’s brain cancer diagnosis, I suffered a heart attack. I had no family history of heart attacks and no underlying medical conditions.

It took many months of healing and rehabilitation, but I was able to return to being an active homeschooling mom and wife.

Today, I spend my time making memories with my family while advocating for heart attack awareness. I teach Hands-Only CPR and share the importance of listening to your body and knowing the signs of a heart attack.
