2017 Survivor Brandy

My name is Brandy Wilson. I am married and have three children. I am a registered nurse and have worked at Western Missouri Medical Center since May 2014 as a charge nurse on the medical-surgical unit. I graduated from SFCC in May of 2014 with an associate’s degree in nursing. I decided to go to college at the age of 28 after being a stay-at-home mom for eight years. It was one of the best decisions I have made in my life and I did it because I’m a SURVIVOR.

On March 12, 2008, I suffered a severe heart attack, ten days after giving birth to my third child. Our lives changed from that day forward. As a survivor, I support the mission of the AHA because the AHA works to raise awareness for heart disease in women. Women are often undiagnosed or incorrectly treated due to atypical symptoms. I knew something wasn’t right, but I couldn’t quite figure out what it was. Looking back, I now see signs and symptoms that were ignored by me and other doctors. I believe that with more education, more women will recognize their symptoms and advocate for their own health. Supporting the AHA can make this possible.
