The Grief At The Heart Of It… Rachael Knowles’ Story

Can you be strong about your heart condition and grieve for it at the same time?

Growing up, Rachael never let her heart condition get in her way. She found herself pushing through rather than processing some of the trauma she experienced. Rachael is now 24 and with the support of her family and health care team, she is navigating a journey to healing.

Rachael also talks about what it was like growing up with CHD in a small rural town, how to advocate for yourself on your medical journey, and why being proactive on family planning is important for young women with CHD.
