Dana, 61 Mitral Valve Repair Patient “The best thing since my surgery has been just feeling normal, running up a flight of steps without stopping to take breaths.” Dana was a healthy, active mother of three. Then suddenly, she couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs without getting out of breath. It was her heart. And it was hereditary. Her team of specialists kept a close watch on her heart, then decided to repair her mitral valve. Now she’s back to running up the stairs. At Allegheny Health Network, caring for all of her, all of her life is #LivingProof. Learn more at AHN.org/AllOfHerLife or call ( 412 ) DOCTORS for an appointment with a women’s heart health expert.
