This six-minute piece features ad agency, Johnson Sekin's, creative director- Shannon Phillips.  Shannon was lead designer/creative for collateral for American Heart Assocation benefit which included a survivor video.  Little did the AHA know that Shannon had her own heart story. Born in 1975 without a fully functioning heart, Shannon would become the youngest person on the face of the planet, at that time, to receive a pacemaker. Nametag Films' Director Chris Rupert traveled to Shannon's home town to interview her dad, sister, the original lab tech who assisted in her very first pacemaker, as well as her husband, two daughters in Dallas, TX. A 20-year veteran of the ad industry, Shannon’s story inspires while giving a new perspective on life to those who view it.
