Haven't stopped working yet!

Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) are a serious condition.  I'm never going to stop raising awareness, but I also want other heart patients like me, who have had open heart surgery, to feel this does not make them any less than perfect.

I wrote a book.  It's really a photo essay  with messages that are meant to inspire heart warriors like me, and everyone really, who feels like they want to hide their scars.  They are what makes you different, and they are beautiful.

The book is on Amazon and part of the proceeds go to Mended Little Hearts which helps and gives hope to patients and their parents, andThe Children's Heart Foundation, which is the only organization that was created to exclusively fund congenital heart defect research, and has funded over $6.3 million to 58 basic science, translational and clinical CHD research projects at leading research centers across the US and Canada.

Please check out my book! and learn more about the project at www.teamlolaonline.com/scars
