Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

Thank you for supporting SCAD Research!

October 12, 2012

Thank you Bob and family for this wonderful website and for supporting SCAD research! My SCAD was in 2003, after the birth of my second son. I was 38 and had a “widow maker” tear at the fork of the LAD, so had double bypass surgery. Today, it feels as though all that happened to a different person. Although SCAD can recur, I don’t dwell on that. My focus is my boys’ future and other women out there who are being misdiagnosed or ignored in the ER.

With deep appreciation to the Alicos, I look forward to “knowing” all the the SCAD women who are finding this site and gaining comfort. We’re in this together!

Best, Katherine
