Meet Karen Campo, Our “Featured Patient” at Heart Valve Journals

By Adam Pick on May 19, 2012

Hi everybody,

I wanted to take a quick moment to introduce you to Karen Campo, the new featured patient at our Heart Valve Journals Community. Unlike many patients who monitor their heart valve disease for years, Karen is on the “Fast Track” to heart valve surgery as she was recently diagnosed with severe mitral regurgitation.

Karen’s attitude warrants attention. She’s very positive and upbeat. As she writes in her journal, “This has all happened really fast, but I am trying to learn as much as I can, have a positive outlook and look to family and friends for support.”

Keep on tickin’ Karen!

My thoughts and prayers are with you!
Adam
