Living life her way.

Donna

A life-altering heart condition doesn't have to alter your life. Normally vibrant and energetic, Donna suddenly felt exhausted and out of breath. She was initially diagnosed with pneumonia, but when she didn't improve, she found answers at our Women's Heart Program. Donna's cardiologist explained that what she really had was Atrial Fibrillation. At the nationally recognized U-M Women's Heart Program, we know that women are different from men. That their heart symptoms differ. And that diagnosis and treatment have to be looked at holistically, examining all aspects of a woman's health. We collaborated with Donna's other U-M doctors on her blood pressure issues and diabetes to come up with a coordinated plan. Today, Donna's traveling, golfing and dancing again.
