For 5 years I have been chronicling the stories of local residents who have suffered from varioius types of heart challenges. Each of them has been kind enough to let me into their lives and share their stories in the local press. My team and page are dedicated to all those wonderful survivors, both those I profiled and all the others, who have benerfitted from the reseach done by AHA.
Through my family history, I am painfully aware of the toll taken by heart disease and stroke. I lost my father and both grandfathers to heart disease and my daughter Allison had open heart surgery 10 years ago for a congenital heart defect. I have observed first hand the wonderful accomplishemnts of the American Heart Association and am proud to do all that I can to advance their mission.
