Hello Karen, The organization Mended Hearts has groups organized across the country. It was first founded as support for open-heart surgery patients but has expanded over the years to include other cardiac patients. They do have a website you can access. The other suggestion I have is to check the American Heart Association for support groups in your area. Most large medical center (hospitals) that have cardiac programs offer support groups. You might try calling the facilities in your general area. I hope you find something that will work for you. Take care and God bless.

Support for women

Hello Karen, I am the founder of an online support group for women - called WIRED4LIFE. We have many women your age (I am one of them!), and although it's not the same as meeting in person; we do have Saturday morning chats, a fantastic newsletter, and a way to post messages. Through the latter - many women have become good friends; and have discovered new 'wired sisters.' Check us out on the web: Or drop me a note:

You know you're wired when...

Your license plate reads “Pacer4Life”.
