Sara has the unique experience of needing an invention like HeartSnug since birth. A complex congenital heart defect resulted in her undergoing open-heart surgery as a baby. Throughout her life, Sara has experienced the challenges inherent with being subjected to countless medical exams and procedures, in addition to having a stroke at 40 years old.
