WHEN GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION!Hello,
My name is Yvette Samuels and I am a 51 year old female. In March of 2015, I had 3 heart attacks and a stroke that night. As the months went by, I have had several mini strokes. I went home in June of 2015 after some rehab and 1 week and a half after arriving home, my lungs filled up with fluid and my heart stopped and I have to be revived. I have had may mini strokes after that and I fell in the shower and messed up my spine resulting in a spine surgery. After all of that, with the help of God, and my trips to nursing homes and rehab, I am proud to say I am now in my own apartment and getting my Independence back! and just to confirm that, I now live on Independence drive!
Hard work, and changing my life style has saved my life.
Eating right and exercising has taught me that it is never too late to correct your mistakes.
I have been given a second chance at life and I am taking it.!
I am very thankful that there is a site like the American Heart Association I can go to and get words of encouragement and help for people to get my life back on track.
If I came all this way after all that has happen to me, you can too. We all need to support one another and remember....
GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION!
