American Heart Association’s Survivor Class 2017: Meet Angie Pavlovsky

Subscribe to 96.1 The Eagle on

You probably already know Angie Pavlovsky from WUTR, but do you know her as a heart disease survivor? Pavlovsky shares her story as part of the American Heart Association’s “Survivor Class 2017.”

Angie was only 21 when she was diagnosed with a major heart issue: Cardiomyopathy. It’s quite a scary and shocking thing to think about. Not only was she so young, but she was also a healthy adult. In the video (above), Angie jokes about eating more Taco Bell than she probably should have, but still she went to the gym and was an active, normal, 21-year-old.

Watch the video to hear Angie’s frightening story when she found herself on the bathroom floor and the shock she experienced after her doctor explained to her what happened and what was wrong with her heart.

She wants people to realize it can happen to you, too. Again, she was only 21 when it happened and she was active and healthy. No one would guess in a million years that she would have to deal with such a scary heart issue. In the video Angie says,

…It doesn’t matter if you’re in your 20s, your 50s, if you’re 80. It can happen to anyone.

Please take Angie’s story to heart. If you’re overworked, stressed, not feeling quite yourself, no matter how old you are or if you don’t have any history of heart issues, go see a doctor. Keep an eye on your heart health and it could just save your life. Angie’s story could have been a lot worse if she would have ignored what had happened to her. Don’t risk it, it’s not worth it.

Angie explains that her family is her “Why.” The “Go Red for Women” campaign asks you to think of your “why.” Who do you want to be around for? Why do you need to make sure you take extra good care of your heart? Think of the people and things in your life that mean everything to you… That is your “why.”

You can join the American Heart Association and their Go Red for Women campaign during the “Go Red for Women Luncheon” at Daniele’s Banquet Specialists in New Hartford on Wednesday, May 3rd. You can get more details on the luncheon, purchase tickets, and/or make a donation by visiting the CNY American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Luncheon Page.
