    Our chapter has a group of young heart patients (under 50) who meet monthly to discuss the challenges of heart issues during the time when they are also dating, marrying, starting families, developing their careers and building lives for themselves. It is a wonderful group who encourage and support each other. Any other young heart patients out there who would like to connect?

    Marilyn I love that your group does this for young adults.  This is definitely an age group we need to start focusing on as an organization - teens and young adults have different needs and questions than other age groups and we want to be able to support them.  Thank you for sharing your model with us.

    I had my aortic valve replaced in January, 2013, and my scar has healed fantastically. I have no sensitivity at all. I am 66 years old now.

    I had CABG x 5 last year at 48 and am interested in this group, but I live in Los Angeles. Is this an online group?
