Heart Health Advice from Heart Attack Survivor Erika Perez

Heart Health Advice from Heart Attack Survivor Erika Perez


My name is Erika Perez.
I’m 41 years old. I’m a mother, wife,
and a heart attack survivor. Three years ago, I suffered
a massive heart attack 10 days after my baby was born. My grandpa died
of a heart attack. My aunt also died
of a heart attack, and I thought it was gonna be
my last day. I was afraid every single day
that I was gonna die. Before the heart attack,
it was, you know, my kids, work, my husband,
the house. Now I have to think about me. If I want to be okay for them, I have to take care of myself
first. I tell everybody to get your
number checked. Go to the doctor,
check your cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar,
know your body. Life is so important, and you
could lose it in one instant. *music*
