My name is Kayla Lewis. I am 22 years old. I am a senior at Georgia State University. I graduate this Fall 2021. I was diagnosed with heart failure in 2018, so when I was 19 years old. Heart failure doesn’t run in my family, and everything else that can cause heart failure didn’t apply to me, so doctors believe that I had a virus that attacked my heart. I was in and out of the hospital frequently, so I eventually had to take a semester off of school. In 2018, I had the LVAD placed inside of me. I was able to leave the hospital after 11 days of having the LVAD. I started back school in 2019 and I am almost finished. I haven’t had any symptoms since I’ve had the LVAD and I try to live as much of a normal life as I can. My goal is to start a YouTube channel so that I can tell my testimony because I feel that is my purpose sin this world.
