ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) – American Heart Month has come to an end, but heart disease remains the number one cause of death in the United States. Now COVID-19 is also playing a role in cardiovascular health.
Heart health is a core aspect of life for Devon Brzezynski.
“I told myself at a really young age that I was going to take care of myself,” she said.
Brzezynski did not have much of a choice: she was born with a congenital heart defect. Her parents made the difficult decision to put their newborn under the knife for surgery.
