Part 2 of 3. One of our INLIV teammates, Jennifer Michaud, shares her heart story in this three-part series. Read Part 1 here.

I was back at the cardiologist’s office in March of 2016. Before we went over my test results, my doctor asked me if I had anything I wanted to say, anything I had noticed health-wise that I wanted to bring up. I was about to say my usual “Nope, nothing” but stopped myself – I was suddenly hit with the urge to tell him about an odd “symptom” I had recently been experiencing; I use quotes around the word symptom because I wouldn’t have known at the time what it was a symptom of, and had only mentioned it because I figured it couldn’t hurt.

One of our INLIV teammates, Jennifer Michaud, shares her heart story in this three-part series. Part 1 of 3.

February is recognized as Heart Month across Canada, in an effort to increase public focus on cardiovascular health and awareness of heart disease and the many ways it affects 1.3 million Canadians and their families. This month is especially important to me as I am an open-heart surgery survivor, and since my surgery almost three years ago it has become a mission for me to make sure everyone values the health of their hearts.
