Gina’s Heart Story

Gina started having seizures when she was seven years old and spent many years in and out of the hospital while doctors figured out how to best handle her condition. She says she will never forget flopping around in the ER and seeing her Dad’s face as he helplessly watched the doctors use paddles to keep her alive. That was one of many defining moments in her life, although she was much too young to realize what a ‘defining moment’ was at the time! As she got older, many people including her Dad and doctors, told Gina that she was handicap and that she shouldn’t ride horses or do this and couldn’t pursue that, etc. She never believed them because she wasn’t in a wheelchair, she had all of her limbs, and she wasn’t intellectually disabled. She felt that she was the most blessed person on the planet with a heart that ran on a battery and only a few scars. Gina considers her heart condition the biggest blessing she has because it gave her a sense of appreciation and keen perspective at a very young age as to what really matters in life.
