No upcoming Meetups
What we're about
This group is for women of all ages with heart disease.
My name is Marisa Martinez. I am a makeup artist and photographer and I was born with a Congenital Heart Defect. I was not meant to live past 3 years old and here I am, 44 and feeling great! I had my third heart surgery almost 3 years ago. I had no idea I needed heart surgery again and was shocked when I was told that I needed to have my pulmonary valve replaced. I just went in to get authorization for an upcoming fibroid surgery when the cardiologist said "absolutely not! Your heart WILL fail." WTF?!?! The gynecologist was ready to do this surgery without getting an ok from a cardiologist even after I told her I was a heart patient. Thank goodness I listened to my instincts and went to see one anyway ONE week before this surgery I was supposed to have.
Most women don't know that the #1 killer of women is heart disease. That it affects some of us in the womb. I have been studying metaphysics for over a year and I have to say that I don't think women and heart disease is an coincidence. I think, I know it comes from somewhere. I feel that we as women take SO much "to heart" and as the philosophy of metaphysics states; what we feel, think, focus on has so much to do with our well being and can have an effect on our health. I am opening up this group to all women. Not just to those with heart disease but to women who need empowerment, who need love, spirituality and the sense of belonging. The only way we are going to stop this #1 killer of women is to go inside of ourselves and start there!
I want to hear your stories. I want to empower you! We need to heal emotionally in order to heal physically. We can be there for each other.
WHO'S WITH ME!
