It was two years ago today that I had the bicycling accident that ended with a trip to the emergency room and a follow-up visit to the cardiologist that ultimately prompted me to start this blog and to take a whole new look at my congenital heart disease.
To this day, I still believe that the accident happened, at least in part, to give me a much-needed wake-up call to take better care of my heart. As a result, the last two years have been pretty amazing. Not only have I had the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC, twice to lobby for CHD awareness and funding at the federal level, but I've also met so many amazing, dedicated, and passionate people in the CHD community. My life has truly been enriched by having made these connections!
