SCAD is Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection which is a tear or bulge in an artery within the heart — often causing a heart attack — and often in young, generally healthy people. 💔
I had a SCAD at age 27 that nearly took my life. Since then I’ve gotten married, become a mother, and have pretty much been living life to the fullest as often as I can. I’m coming up on my 8 year “scadiversary.” Does that mean I’m not scared out of my mind that it will happen again? No. But what can I do except help spread awareness about the importance of listening to your body when it tells you something is wrong?!?
Never. Ignore. Symptoms. Of. A. Heart. Attack.
I helped plan the first annual MN SCADADDLE and am involved still. If you are interested in hosting a vendor booth at our event... let me know! 🛍
Get CPR certified and spread the word. Thank you! 🙏
