‘I couldn’t do it all by myself’


The fainting episodes started near the end of Morgan Centeno’s junior year at Riverview High School. Over a two-month period the active teen fainted more than 250 times and was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).  

The condition, which causes a rapid increase in heart rate with a decrease in blood pressure, caused Morgan to experience severe dizziness and sometimes briefly lose consciousness.

“It was scary because I didn’t know when it was going to happen, and everyone around me freaked out,” she says. 

When the fainting episodes began, the energetic, diligent student was deeply immersed in many activities, all while keeping up with rigorous International Baccalaureate classes.  

“I didn’t have time for POTS,” Morgan says.  

As a sophomore, Morgan took a job at Publix, working 25-38 hours a week.
