Every single person has suffered or has known someone who has been affected by heart disease. Some of you may have even lost someone who simply left this world sooner than they had to!
Heart disease can be a problem with the heart pump, the arteries, the electrical part and/or heart valves! The thing is, you may not know there is a problem until it is too late!!
Heart disease is the #1 killer of men and women around the world!! The good news is that AWARENESS can save lives!!! Family history, smoking, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol and high blood pressure all contribute to heart disease...AND MUST BE IDENTIFIED AND TREATED!
My participation in Heart Walk promotes fun ways to be physically active and make healthier choices every day. Imagine the impact if we reduce death and disability from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent by 2020!
Get healthy, take a walk, see you doctor, and ask questions about YOUR heart health!!!
Please support the AHA with donations for ongoing cardiovascular research...right here in the Capital Region!!!
