As part of our “Faces of Heart Disease” project, we profile Amanda Daniels. Though young and fit, she was diagnosed with Heart Failure at 25. Following treatment with medication and cardiac ablation surgery Amanda recovered enough heart function to have two healthy children.
She now co-runs WomenHeart West LA, a support group for young women diagnosed with heart disease.
