Christy’s Survivor Story

🎥 We are back with another 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 three and a half year survival story of aortic dissection survivor, Christy Morrell. Christy discusses her initial misdiagnosis and eventual surgery, to how she is adjusting to her new life while struggling with PTSD and depression. She is making it a priority to spread awareness about aortic dissection and try to make sure no one is misdiagnosed like she was.
