About Travis

Travis Van Slooten is a blogger, internet marketer and atrial fibrillation patient who has been passionate about providing knowledge, inspiration, and support to fellow AFibbers ever since his diagnosis in 2006.

He has been familiar with the disease for a long time as his father was also diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. In 2015, he underwent a successful catheter ablation surgery.

His goal is to help fellow patients manage the disease rather than allowing it to rule their life. To do this, he believes in making improvements in three core areas: physical, mental, and spiritual.

He also believes AFibbers must take control of their own healthcare and arm themselves with as much information as possible, allowing them to make decisions that are in their own best interests.

He lives in Minneapolis, MN with his wife and two children.
