I walk because I believe in the American Heart Association’s mission and for me this is a cause that really hits so close to home. 8 years ago at the age of 29, I suffered a stroke that changed my life in many ways. Before then, I didn’t think heart disease or stroke were a risk to “young people” but the reality is it’s a disease that doesn’t discriminate. Since then it has been a mission of mine as a young woman survivor to share my story, connect with others and educate them on the warning signs.
This year I am so excited and proud to be part of the Rochester AHA's 2021 Executive Leadership Team for the Heart Walk! I know that with every step, I’m making a difference in someone’s life. And when combined with a million other Heart Walk Heroes across the nation, we have an even greater impact toward curing heart disease and stroke. Will you be a Heart Walk Hero with me?
