After a diagnosis of aortic valve disease and an aortic aneurysm in 2015, Pete and Amy Johnson learned firsthand the lack of information and lack of resources available regarding aortic conditions. The Johnsons were frustrated and disheartened by how much conflicting advice and misinformation they received from different doctors and online resources.
Living through the experience, they realized all the doom and gloom on the internet was not the true story for most patients with aortic disease. The Johnsons embarked on a journey to share the details of their experience— and the hope they eventually found-- so others faced with a similar diagnosis are not left searching for answers.
The Johnsons founded Rock from the Heart after Pete’s open-heart surgery in 2017 to raise awareness and lessen fears about aortic conditions.
Knowledge is powerful when it comes to your health.
· Rock from the Heart supports families from diagnosis to recovery by connecting them with resources and information that is often hard to find.
· When families know the basics surrounding aortic disease, they will know how to be the best possible advocate for themselves when it comes to making medical decisions.
Awareness is key to survival. Rock from the Heart events help bring the condition to the forefront.
Through concerts and education events, Rock from the Heart uses music to inspire and provide hope to people affected by aortic disease
