I travel to love my heart.
Sydney’s message is simple: not all heart disease is preventable and visiting your doctor is essential. During a routine checkup, Sydney’s primary care physician discovered a heart murmur and took immediate action. Even though she was young, a visit to a specialist was prescribed. The cardiologist diagnosed Sydney with cardiomyopathy and since her diagnosis, Sydney has endured five heart surgeries. Sydney participates in the Anchorage Heart Walk and shares her story to encourage others to pay attention to the warning signs and be kind to patients who are battling heart disease.
