I'm excited to be back as S&P Global Platts team co -captain for the American Heart Association NYC Run & Heart Walk this year! Last year the Platts team helped S&P raise 82K.
I walk for my 12 year old son, a heart warrior who was born with tetralogy of fallot. He had his first heart repair surgery at 3 months old. A second surgery is in Jacob's future to replace his valve. My hope is for less invasive surgery options when the time comes. At his annual checkup recently, they discovered he's experiencing premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), so we are exploring what this means for him and his treatment. In the meantime, he continues playing ice hockey and living a very normal life!!!
The American Heart Association is instrumental in the fight against heart disease and stroke. This organization gives me hope for Jacob and others who have known or unknown heart issues. Please join my team or donate today. Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today!
