Julie’s Smiling Scar Selfie Goes Viral!

By Adam Pick on May 24, 2018

Thanks to Julie…  I’m having another “Holy Moly” moment.

What happened?  First, I saw an inspirational Smiling Scar Selfie from Julie Gerard posted at our community.  Julie just had a mitral valve repair procedure on April 19.  I loved the photo. So, I shared it at Facebook.  Then… Julie went viral.  In less than 24 hours, Julie’s picture received over 5,000 social shares, 400+ encouraging comments, and directly reached over 41,000 people around the world.

 

 

Many thanks to Julie for sharing her Smiling Scar Selfie with our community!  And, thanks to you for supporting Julie as she recovers from heart valve surgery!

Keep on tickin’ Julie!
