Beauty blogger and writing about heart disease? I know the combination sounds weird. But heart health is a topic that has been close to my heart ever since I lost my mom to heart attack. Death of a loved one can hurt even after 20 years. Even if you think you have buried it deep inside, the intensity of pain can strike anytime.
So this morning, while glancing through the daily paper when my eyes fell on an article about heart health and women, the chilling memories of my mom’s sudden demise to this uninformed killer came alive.
More awful than the feeling of loss is the feeling that irreparable loss could have been prevented.
