Survivor Story of Comedian Kristin Andersen-Anderson

Today is Saturday Survivor Series!

🎤 We are back with a new video 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 nearly 7 month journey of comedian Kristin Andersen-Anderson. Her story chronicles from the beginning when she felt a "pop" minutes before she went on stage to her trip to the hospital after the show was over where she was diagnosed with a Type A dissection.

🤗 She shares the struggles of being away from her family in the hospital as well as adjusting to her new life post dissection. Something we all can relate to. With the help of her family and close friends, she is now adapting to her new life and looking forward with a tenacious amount of positivity!

❤️ You never know how your story, whether as a survivor or caregiver, will affect and inspire others.
