Survivor Spotlight: Sheila Long

Meet Sheila Long, Survivor and Advocate for Women's Heart Health. As a healthy, active and vibrant woman in her 40’s, Sheila never expected to experience a heart attack.  Sheila did not have the common risk factors for heart attack – she was a non-smoker, she exercised on a regular basis and maintained a healthy diet and weight.  However, Sheila did have heart disease in her family.

Sheila shares her story of survival to encourage all women to know their numbers, and to know their risk for heart attack – including genetics.  We are proud of Sheila’s courage and determination to raise awareness for heart disease among women.  It can happen to anyone.
