By the time the ambulance arrived at Tri-City Medical Hospital, Celine was in a coma due to her cardiac arrest. She was then treated with therapeutic hypothermia, the first ever at Tri-City Medical and it saved her life. She had an S-ICD (subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator) implanted so she can exercise and live life knowing she has help should another cardiac even occur. Despite Celine’s many setbacks her motto is “Choose joy, no matter the circumstance.” Celine loves sharing her joy by giving back to the community. She volunteers for the American Heart Association and many other worthy causes.
