Charlene’s story

I knew about a heart murmur for a few years.  Then in 2018, at age 61, my heart started to skip beats – lots of them.  In 2018, I had my mitral valve repaired and the aortic valve “trimmed” during open heart surgery.    Had great cardiologist and surgeon.  I’m still doing great now.
