Survivors and caregivers feeling this way come every day to the American Heart Association’s Support Network, looking for hope and a connection to others who have been through what they are experiencing. Volunteer moderators and bloggers keep this site full of real talk, positivity and helpful advice for those who are struggling.
Support Network bloggers share their insights and experience either as a one-time share or as a regular contributor. Topics range from the very practical (what you need to know about dentist visits after you’ve had valve replacement) to the emotional (what I wish I’d known back then).
If you're a survivor, we would welcome you to join the Support Network blogging panel. Please email Alexson Calahan at [email protected] a quick introductory message with some background information to get started!
