The Sudden Writing Prize Winner – Jeimer Ng for ‘Hereditary’
Several doctors now have urged me to care more for my heart’s health. They’ve noted my mother’s hereditary heart condition and all the complications that could arise in my future if I didn’t take immediate action. But when considering the abundance of hearts that my mother’s own has touched and plastered back together (mine included), I do not see this issue of inheritance being such a bad thing. Let the heart beat as it pleases – fibrillation and all.
