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. 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 will celebrate 10 years since my stroke and I am so excited to be chair of the 2022 Rochester Heart Walk event! 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?
