My name is Dionne Shelton and I am a Heart Transplant recipient, and Congestive Heart Failure survivor.

As a 56 year old mother of three, a grandmother of five and my extended family, I am grateful to all who support me and have helped me keep a positive attitude. In 2015, I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and for the last four years I’ve been hospitalized a number of times. First in February 2015 when I suffered a stroke and received the diagnosis, which then required extensive treatment. After months of recovery, I tried returning to work as a private caregiver, but my condition had worsened. By December of 2017, I had a Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) put in place to help the blood flow to my organs as I waited for a new heart.
