I walk because I come from a family with heart health challenges. My mom, Maureen, was born with a heart murmur and was recently diagnosed with congestive heart failure.
Maureen was born in 1938 and has been married to my father, "Jack" for 59 years. She earned her BS in Nursing from the University of Pittsburgh in 1961. She is a loving wife, mother and grandmother. My mom has been a caretaker for many years - and now she needs some care!
My mom is my Heart Hero - your donation will fund groundbreaking research that will literally keep her heart beating and will help her and others like her have longer, healthier lives.
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.
The photo above shows my mom leaning on my heart. She has my heart and I have hers. Will you join us and be a Heart Walk Hero too?
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today!
