Support. Education. Friendship.
Three components to good heart health!
WIRED4LIFE began with one member and has become the leading community for women with implanted cardiac devices such as pacemakers, icd’s and replacement heart valves.
We support our wired sisters and friends by providing education about their devices, emotional support and friendship.
Dawn Huberty founded WIRED4LIFE in May 2004. It has since morphed from a regular coffee date with the first member, Marian Carlson Smith to an online community of thousands and a private group of 150 women.
We meet every “odd” year in St. Paul, Minnesota to learn about our devices, (thanks Boston Scientific, Medtronic and St. Jude Medical), we also laugh, eat copious amounts of chocolate and share our stories. After all, that is what WIRED4LIFE is all about, finding someone that can relate to you.
Our longtime blog WIRED WORDS has now become the 'home' of WIRED4LIFE.
We encourage you to read blog posts and learn more about our WIRED community.
