"Welcome! My name is Andee Weiner and I am a WomenHeart Champion and the South East District Support Leader for WomenHeart Support Networks in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. I had my heart attack in September 2006 at a pivotal moment in my life. It took me 3 day's to seek medical attention as I "only" had pain across my back for starters. I did have several other symptoms but I dismissed them (sound familiar?). I'm grateful and thankful to WomenHeart for the opportunity to pay it forward as a Support Network Coordinator in Miami and Southeast District Support Leader. By dedicating my time and passion to educating women, providing support and advocacy, I hope to make a difference in their lives the way WomenHeart has made in mine."
