My Heart is Why
It all started in detention. There I was, 17 years old, wasting away a Saturday because I had the unfortunate luck to get caught with gum in class. I was given a choice by my detention officer: I could either go outside and help pick up trash with the rest of the ne'er do wells, or I could summarize an article for the detention officer's sick child. I found it a bit odd that the detention officer was asking me to do something that would actually be detention-worthy, but it was ridiculously hot outside that day so I chose option number two.

Susan Miller, Shreveport
Susan Miller’s heart story began 15 years ago when she experienced shortness of breath and coughing at night. She went to the doctor, who told her she had reflux and gave her medication for her symptoms. For four months, she continued living not knowing her heart could stop at any minute.
