Hailey Bieber Reflects On Her Mini-Stroke 1 Year Later
It has been one year since Hailey Bieber suffered a mini-stroke, and she’s now reflecting on the ordeal. In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Bieber shared how the health scare changed her outlook on life.
“I think it was definitely a wake-up call,” she said. “It made me really prioritize taking care of myself and my health.”
Bieber’s mini-stroke, also known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA), was caused by a heart condition called patent foramen ovale (PFO), which can allow blood clots to bypass the lungs and enter the brain.
Fortunately, Bieber was able to receive treatment for the PFO, which involved closing the hole in her heart using a device called an occluder. She has since made a full recovery and is thankful for the experience.
“I feel like it’s something that happened to me for a reason,” she said. “It definitely put things into perspective and made me appreciate life a lot more.”
Bieber also urged others to prioritize their health and not ignore any concerning symptoms.
“It can happen to anyone, and it’s important to pay attention to your body and any potential warning signs,” she said.
As Bieber marks the one-year anniversary of her mini-stroke, she is grateful for her health and plans to continue prioritizing self-care.
