We are back with another story for our Survivor Series! On certain Saturdays during the month, we will share stories from survivors or caregivers within the Aortic community.
Today we bring you the survivor story of Steve Richards.
As a child, Steve was diagnosed with Aortic Stenosis and became quite familiar with open heart surgery more than once. The unique takeaway from Steve's story is the importance he stresses on getting help for his mental health and how to alleviate some of the emotional toll multiple surgeries may have on someone.
You can learn more about Steve's story HERE.
Be the shining star in someone's life by submitting your story of survival or caring for someone with Aortic disease.
We really want to know about the symptoms that were experienced and the process of diagnosis. We will be sharing this blog with Think Aorta US and use it as a tool to show Emergency Room Physicians and First Responders why it is so important to Think about the Aorta.
