I am excited about making the ride this year. Last year my horse was stalled for nearly 5 months due to injury and I missed the ride. This year we hope to be healthy!!
When I was 6 years old my Mom had her first bout with heart disease. I grew up always afraid that a bad heart would take her from me. It did not!! However, I spent many fearful nights. I always tried to behave so she would not become upset.
My mom had 6 girls and two boys. Her first son died as an infanct due to a hole in his heart. It was many, many years ago, and there was nothing they could do. Research has advanced so that infants now have a chance!!
There are many reasons this heart ride is dear to me. I am delighted to be able to participate this year, and I beg you will honor my Mom and myself with a donation. Let's make huge strides against heart disease!!
