The Heart Feels First

A Story of Revival and Recovery

Imagine experiencing the joy of childbirth only to have your world turned upside down nine days later. This is the true story of Naesha Parks. After blacking out, she went to the hospital where a blood clot was found, but doctors soon discovered that she was also experiencing a rare and deadly spontaneous coronary artery dissection, where two of the arteries of her heart had completely split. While on the operating table, Naesha died.


Doctors worked to revive her, but were not optimistic about her outcome. After being in a medically induced coma with her chest open for nine days, finally, slowly, she started to improve.


Through her own account and through the contributions of friends, family, doctors, and surgeons, The Heart Feels First: A Story of Revival and Recovery is a unique and unprecedented look at what it means to survive and witness a miracle and how life finds a way to transition into a new normal.
