Christine Shaver:
Living life with a big heart.

What do you do when you have two active boys and need a device to help your heart pump blood?

Like many social workers, Chrissy Shaver, a MedicAlert member since 2018, has a big heart full of compassion for people in need. Over the years, she has given her time and energy to help victims of rape and domestic abuse in New York. She used to be Director of Social Service for a center that received as many as 900 patients every year. She is also busy with raising two teenage sons. Her goal in life is to help people and make a difference in the world. While her heart for serving others remains strong, her physical heart cannot keep up. First diagnosed with congestive heart failure (CHF) in 2011, Chrissy is now waiting for a heart transplant.
