Team Paula

An online journey of one young woman's battle to stay alive and raise her daughter. She is only the second person in the US to receive the 50cc TAH-t artificial heart, a bridge to transplant.

Heart Attack

Paula was selling Girl Scout cookies with her daughter and the troop she leads on a Saturday morning in March. At the time she had stomach pain and was very tired and weak but she did not realize that she had suffered a heart attack until she was following up with her cardiologist. Her doctors discovered her donated heart was working at only 30%.
