P.A.D Warriors Tell All
At The Way To My Heart's annual P.A.D. Warriors conference, P.A.D. Warriors shared their experiences and what patients, physicians, industry, and researchers need to know about this disease.
"My mother died in my arms at hospice due to lung cancer. On her dying bed she ask me to promise her that I would quit smoking and I made the promise. Little did I know that it would take me 20 years and 6 surgeries later to keep my promise to my mom...."
Walking Out of CLTI
In this discussion, A Canadian friend with P.A.D. shares her story of perseverance and pushing through the pain and walking her way to a natural bypass by growing collateral vessels with every step, she doesn't wish the journey on anyone. She impresses upon physicians the importance of listening to patients and not delaying treatment for lifestyle-limiting claudication and rest pain. Watch to the end as this inspiring woman, who thought she was only at the table to raise awareness of the experiences of CLTI Patients, gets the tables turned on her when a member of the physician panel provides a real-time revelation that could change her future.
