Move Over Taylor Swift! David Sets New Fashion Trend!

By Adam Pick on June 20, 2019

Ya just gotta see it… To love it.

Here is David Russ modeling a new t-shirt that is setting fashion trends from Milan to Paris to Los Angeles. That’s right. After his aortic valve replacement by Dr. Kevin Accola at AdventHealth, David took to Facebook to show off a fantastic, post-op smile and an awesome t-shirt featuring a cow standing on top of a heart rhythm.

 

 

As Nancy, his wife posted at Facebook, “My hubby’s aortic valve was replaced with a bovine [cow] valve 96 hours ago.  Went home today… Doing well so far!  God is Good and Life is Great.  His surgeon, Dr. Kevin Accola, is a true Rock Star and we will be forever grateful to him to God for guiding his skilled surgeon hands.”

So you know, this t-shirt was designed by Damian, a two-time open heart surgery patient.  Here’s a close-up of the t-shirt.

 

 

Many thanks to David for raising awareness to heart valve disease and cow valve replacements through his stylish t-shirt.  And, a special thanks to Dr. Kevin Accola at AdventHealth for yet #AnotherAccolaSuccessStory.  (Yes, Dr. Accola has helped so many patients in our community, we gave him his own hash tag.)

[June 22 Update] After posting this story yesterday, my inbox flooded with patients wanting to purchase this t-shirt.  I just found it at Amazon. To learn more or buy the t-shirt, click here.

Keep on tickin’ David!
