It has been over 8 years since my new heart began beating in my chest. You can't imagine how wonderful it was to have a heart beat. For the previous six months I lived with an LVAD- a motor in my chest, no heart beat or pulse just the whine of the 10,000 RPM motor.
Yes, I owe my life to the American Heart Association. The technology and development supported by events such as this have given me 8 wonderful years of life.
I thank god, family and the AHA for this, the greatest gift.
I ask you to please donate to the AHA Beach ride in my name.
