February’s special anniversary

Valentine’s Day has always been a favorite of associate Jan H. But in Feb. 2010 the day of hearts took on new meaning for her when she had heart surgery to replace her aortic valve. She now uses her story to spread heart awareness to others.

“Since finding out about my ailment, which is actually a birth defect, I always try to provide awareness to others, particularly on Go Red Day, about heart disease and stroke dangers. Since I began sharing this information, I have found others with the same issue and feel very fortunate to be part of the Survivors Club. My colleagues make these time of year even more special by always remembering me on Go Red for Women Day.

Personally, I also have a great cardiologist who takes care of my heart and great friends and a loving husband who all make each year better and better. I am very blessed!
