These posters contain valuable life saving information and are the heartbeat of the Think Aorta Campaign! Here is the middle column of the poster. How many risk factors are you aware of?

Today we bring you the incredible story of Suzy Meyer-Page, 20 year Survivor of a Type A and eventual Type B Dissection. Suzy’s story is quite amazing considering she was misdiagnosed more than once!

Once Suzy’s Type A dissection was eventually diagnosed, 20 years ago, she still had to endure comp
