Rachel's El Camino: It's not just a walk!

Hello fellow SCA survivor's and ICD recipients!!

The 25th Anniversary of my SCD will be this December. To commemorate this achievement, I will be walking over 500 miles on - the centuries old spiritual pilgrimage trail - the El Camino de Santiago, starting in France, and ending at the sea in Spain.

I was 33 yrs old when I experienced my initial SCA, and spent 47 days, in 2 hospital, and 3 different states. I experienced temporary blindness ,and lasting visual impairment as a result of oxygen deprivation to the brain. Like many of you, it is a miracle we are alive.

Back in 1992 there was no literature that dealt with the psychological impact of adjusting to this life changing event, so I wrote the book titled SUDDEN DEATH: A Survivor's Story, that was published in 2000. For about 2 years I was honored to be a guest speaker at various medical venues across the country, where I shared my unique experience with medical professionals ,and ICD recipients.
