Life is Why! Join me in supporting the American Heart Association!

I lost my mother Helen Weems, to heart transplant rejection in 2006. My husband lost his father to cardiac arrest and his stepfather to stroke. My son Jonas will never get the chance to meet these grandparents. I want to live a heart healthy life and meet Jonas' children. The monies raised today will save lives tomorrow and into the future, maybe even mine.

I’m not just walking. I’m Heartwalking. My participation in Heart Walk promotes fun ways to be physically active and make healthier choices every day. Imagine the impact if we reduce death and disability from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent by 2020. Please help me reach this lifesaving goal by donating today. Together, we can make healthier, longer lives possible for everyone. 

Thank you in advance for your support!
