WomenHeart2015My HeartStory…
Leticia is a marathon aficionado, advocate, industrial/organizational psychologist, and caregiver. Mom a pacemaker survivor after Type2 Diabetes damaged her heart and dad passed from a Heat Stroke that led to a massive heart attack. She was inspired to share their family’s story and founded ÁmateAhora, Voices for Health. She reached out to WomenHeart. Thanks to WomenHeart, insisting she see a Cardiologist, they saved her life. Fall 2014 she was first detected with a Heart Murmur, later diagnosed with Valvular Regurgitation aka “Leaky Valves”. It’s a condition where the valves don’t close properly making her heart work harder.
