Ed and I began riding in the AHA Beach ride in 2010 and joined team Noah shortlly after. Noah needed to have a valve replaced in his heart at 4 days old and today is five years old!! A remarkable thing since I have met other little children (Stone) and thier familes, only to hear that they lost their life shortly after meeting them.
In 2012 I almost lost Ed when he bent over to tie his shoe and passed out, with me finding him there later. He had lost consciousness because his front artery (the widow maker) was 90% blocked with his back artery being 80% blocked. I am thankfull that technology is advancing every year and able to help ones like Ed and little Noah. Advancement made possible by your donations. Thank you for supporting American Heart Association. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
