you may not know this dear instagram friends, but kate is a heart patient. the little oval shape to the left is her pacemaker, which keeps her heart beating regularly. the wires you see in her sternum were put there when she was 5 years old after surgery to mend a congenital heart defect. she is alive and well today because of the amazing doctors and scientists that have spent their lives learning to help others.
so today, in honor of kate being so d**n awesome and inspiring i am asking you to support #worldheartday 🖤 #heartforaheart 🖤 and the british heart foundation. @the_bhf let's help them continue their great work. be a part of this incredible movement and raise awareness by creating your heart and posting it today 9/29 which is #worldheartday with the tags above, and please, if you can find it in your heart ~ donate!
#tuesdaytip ⬆️⬆️⬆️ took my first dance class today since injuring my shoulder. still a little stuck but so grateful to be reminded that my body can heal and move. thank you to @kimblank for always being the greatest role model and b****e shaking leader. #dance#move#loveyourself#lovemrs
The #sayiloveyou campaign by @drbrandt in honor of suicide prevention month is a gorgeous example of using social media for good. for every post, the dr. brandt foundation will donate $1 to a specific project run by the dr. brandt foundation up to $100k in aid of suicide prevention. repost it. invite your friends and followers to do the same. every year thousands of people are being lost to this “epidemic” because of depression and other mental illnesses. let's connect to change it. #loveyourself#lovemrs • artwork by andy warhol
