Together, let's start a health revolution!
As many of you know I am a heart disease survivor being born with two congenital heart defects. One of which required emergency surgery when I was eight-months old, and even today I am monitored closely with cardiac MRIs and annual stress tests. I hope for more advances in care to reduce the risks to me in the future. This has made my efforts in raising funds for the American Heart Association very personal to me.
I’m sure you know someone who has been affected by stroke or heart disease. A family member... a friend... a coworker.
Stroke and heart disease are the No. 5 and No. 1 killers in America - and I want to do something about it.
Fewer than 1% of all Americans are in ideal cardiovascular health, as defined by the American Heart Association, yet 39% of Americans BELIEVE they are in ideal cardiovascular health.
There is an urgent need for new science and education, now more than ever. The lives of so many Americans are at stake. Will you join me in starting a health revolution?
