As a survivor of a heart attack, and someone who underwent life saving open heart surgery, the Founder of Heart Speaks is committed to shining a bright light on the number one killer in the United States.  No one should ever have to say “I wish I would have known more about heart disease, my outcome may have been different.” 

A Message From the Founder

“I believe awareness is a strong medicine it helps to save lives” In 2011 after suffering a heart attack I was told have “Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy” I had to have open heart surgery.

My lifestyle changed in this way by volunteering for many different organizations such as “American Heart Association, Association of Black Cardiology, Harlem Health Hearts, Women’s Heart Health”to help spread the word about heart disease. Knowing the warning sign of a heart attack which are “Shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting lower or upper back or jaw line pain.” which occurs in women.

Heart attack symptom are different for men. Numbers you should know. Blood pressure, Cholesterol and Sugar levels”, check with your doctor the next time you see him or her, After speaking at many different events and sharing my survivor story, I’m always hoping this will give the researchers and doctors a better understanding of what a patient / survivor may be feeling or going through.

I want my voice to become a vehicle for other survivors, patients and their families.
