Survivor Spotlight: Jen

Jen goes on life support just days after giving birth.


“I had a pretty normal mom life, everything was pretty good and it was a very happy life.”

Pregnancy-induced heart failure threatened her life.


“We just had a new baby, and then all of a sudden within a day or two she’s on life support and fighting for her life. They told me that my only chance was a heart transplant."

Her treatment plan was based on research funded by the AHA.

“And the American Heart Association made that [heart transplant] possible. Their research helped save me.”

She’s still here—and gets to be mom.
