Life Support: Ronwyn Hubner

For my TMA Life Support trip, I chose a 10-day, 3,500-mile road trip to Zion National Park and  was fortunate enough to visit 10 National Parks and  three State Parks on this journey.

Hiking has always been a passion of mine and  these were my first hikes after having two heart attacks caused by   Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissections. My health scares came in August and  October 2013, when I survived the Widow Maker right here while working at TMA. My doctors were amazed I survived and  I had a total of four stents placed. I thought my hiking days were over, but was given the all clear to go on the trip after another heart surgery in February of this year.

I reconnected with my man, nature and  learned to appreciate the natural beauty around me again — all without fear of being too far from a major hospital. I also combined my love of history and  visited roadside historical markers along the way. Land  transfers to the U.S. government were a big business in West Texas with the typical losers of the deals being Indians and  Mexican immigrants.


This was by far the best ‘vacation’ the both of us have ever experienced. I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you Ray, Dan and  Brad for this great TMA program!
