I walk because I know that with every step, I’m making a difference in someone’s life. We all know someone who has either been affected by heart disease or whom had sadly lost their battle. I have lost both my parents, and several of my cousins to this deadly disease. I have also lost too many friends and co-workers way too young from heart disease.
I recently had a scare of my own. I had been a runner and had just completed a Ragnar with friends, when I noticed I was out of breath by just attending to daily tasks. I put this off as "Well I was getting older," but when I could no longer walk up "Heart Attack Hill" at work without being out of breath I went to my Dr. He shipped me directly to Yale New Haven Hospital where I ended up with three Stents in my heart.
I survived Heart disease and this has become even more personal to me!<3 <3 <3
