SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

It's the first support group of its kind in our area.

St. Joseph's/Candler and Women Heart Savannah put together a peer-to-peer support group for women with heart disease. They hosted a free Heart to Heart event on Thursday.

Surgeons, survivors and those battling heart disease all got together for the first of many monthly meetings.

"Women heart patients often feel very isolated and under stress. So it's essential to their recovery that they have each other and they have other people that they know care about them and have gone through similar experiences,” said Murem Sharpe, Women Heart Savannah.

Thursday's event was free and in recognition of American Heart Month. For more information on how to join the support group, click here.
