9780991134021: The Heart to Survive: A Memoir

On the night of July 5, 2009, the life of Carolyn Powell -- a young, athletic, working mother of two young boys, married to the love of her life-- changed forever.

One night, Carolyn awoke to cries of her son. Minutes after she left his side, Carolyn's husband, Luke, found Carolyn lying in their son's bed -- her heart, stopped.

Paramedics worked to bring her heartbeat back, with the risk of damage to her brain due to lack of oxygen growing with each minute. After 15 minutes, they finally got her heart beating, but surviving was only the beginning...

Learning to navigate motherhood with a disability after surviving cardiac arrest is just part of the remarkable story of Carolyn Powell's recovery from sudden cardiac arrest as a result of Long QT Syndrome. Carolyn's story takes readers on a journey filled with joy and laughter that dissolves into tears, from hopelessness to triumphs and everything in between.

About the Author:

Born in Florence, Alabama, in 1981, Carolyn Powell moved to Richmond, Virginia, with her family when she was 7. After high school, Carolyn registered to attend college at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia; graduating with her Bachelor of Sciences degree in Dietetics in 2004. After completing her internship, Carolyn landed her dream job as the dietician at the University of Richmond.

In August, 2007, Landon was born. Parker followed not long after in April of 2009. Then, on the night of July 5, 2009, life as she knew it -- a young, athletic, working mother of two young boys, married to the love of her life -- changed forever.

Carolyn now spends most of her time at home, caring for Landon and Parker as a full-time mom. Occasionally, she writes books and blogs about the challenges of her recovery, living with Long QT, and -- her favorite topic -- parenting her two sons.
