Not too long ago, Nate Estes was just another guy working in IT and playing video games in his free time. But when his five-year-old Maltese, Zoe, was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Heart Disease, and given one year to live, everything changed. After many hopeless nights spent doing research online, Nate found one man doing Mitral Valve repair surgery on dogs. Problem was Nate lived in Los Angeles, and the surgeries were being done in Japan and France. Nate made the decision to fly Zoey to France for the surgery.
It saved her life. And it changed his.
In this inspiring interview, Nate shares how going through this ordeal inspired him to want to help other pet parents with dogs facing the same prognosis. Nate and six others created the Mighty Hearts Project, a non profit foundation dedicated to bringing visibility to this surgery by sharing their collective knowledge about their experience.
I invite you to listen, learn, and be inspired!
