I was born with a rare heart defect called Tetrology of Fallot, and I have undergone 5 heart surgeries by my 29th birthday, two of them being Open Heart Surgery. I have died, gone to heaven and lived to tell my story. My journey and what I have been through, is not only something I am proud of, but it has become the foundation for my being.
I started Imperfectly Perfect in 2011 because I know first hand how important having the right support is, and what a difference it makes, in the lives of those affected by Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). I am very fortunate to have a great support system and I feel as if that support, has shaped me into the woman I am today. Growing up with CHD, and all of the additional stress that came with the disease, is not an easy thing to manage. I am no stranger to getting bullied because of my scar, feeling isolated or different, doctors, hospitals, surgeries and everything else that comes with living with Congenital Heart Disease.
I plan to dedicate my life to helping the CHD community, and making a difference in each life I come in contact with along the way.
