Priscilla Riley

Clinical study makes a difference for Riley

As a small child, Priscilla Riley, now 70, had rheumatic fever that damaged her heart. Her heart problem meant she could not run and play with other children, she says sadly. She could only watch from the sidelines. Her heart problem became something she just lived with, making adjustments as she could.
