Beginning February, you may begin seeing people wearing red and doing anything possible to raise awareness on heart-related illnesses.

For my February health section, I'd love to tell the story of someone's amazing journey with some heart-related illness or defect. I know you all have powerful stories to tell.

Last year, we look at Kelley Drastata, of Edna, who received a heart transplant. In November, she completed a half marathon with her new heart.

My deadline to find someone is Jan. 30. I'd love to know who you suggest.

Respond to this blog, tweet me at j_r_ortega, email me at or give me a call at 361-580-6504.

Can't wait to read your nominations!
