As a double heart valve surgery patient, I'd like to personally welcome you to our online community of heart valve surgery patients, their families and friends!
After I was diagnosed with severe heart valve disease, I experienced several uncomfortable feelings including fear and confusion. I also experienced an overwhelming emotion of loneliness. I didn't know anybody with heart valve disease. I didn't know what to expect before or after surgery. Deep down, I really wished there was some may I could meet, talk with and learn from other patients.
For those reasons, I started this community to see if any other patients and caregivers felt like me. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, I'm happy to share that this community is helping thousands of patients in over 50 countries around the world.
