Tell Us Your Story: Celebrated my 20th survival year ////// My heart doctor thinks that is a world record. That length of time is exceptional considering I suffered a “total” dissection. I am known as the “miracle man” at the hospital.
I have two aneurysms that have been at a critical stage for the last ten years but have not failed. I have gotten very familiar with living day to day. Life is great, enjoy every moment.
