Following near-fatal, ‘unusual-to-rare’ heart disorder, Joyce Fairman determined to find out everything possible about what went wrong with her heart; what complicated her surgery and other treatments; and what information is now available to help people to be as heart healthy as possible. She founded Hearts of Color, Inc. to help publicize availability of information, support, and other resources for people before and after experiencing heart disease.
Although focusing on the special needs and risks affecting women of color’s heart and other health conditions, Ms Fairman’s web site includes men’s health issues as well.
To fund it’s program, Hearts of Color, Inc. recently held it’s monthly fund-raiser breakfast at the Applebees Restaurant in Highland.
