Shirley Hollar - In July 2020, I contracted pericarditis. Due to excess fluid that accumulated around my heart, compromising both heart & lung function, I had a drain surgically implanted.

I was cared for by an amazing team of medical professionals, to whom I am deeply indebted. Praise God for both medicine, miracle, & the prayers of many!
