Anna L. Jeter is an artist and writer living in Excelsior, Minnesota, with her parents and her sweet mini goldendoodle, Luna. Anna was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in 1999 at the age of 4. After a 19-year fight, she received a lifesaving heart-lung transplant in 2018. After enduring many complications, Anna was finally discharged home in April 2019. Now, living with a tracheostomy, and dependent on oxygen, she celebrates the time gifted to her by her donor, never taking the joys of everyday life for granted. Anna’s art and writing is centered on grief, survival, and the hope that continues to bloom amidst these circumstances.
