I was originally introduced to the American Heart Association through a professional colleague over a decade ago. At the time, I did not have a personal connection to the AHA or its mission. Unfortunately, in 2015, I had a 30 year work colleague who died due to cardiovasular disease at the age of 48. She left behind her husband and 2 young children. She became my "Why" and is why I am so dedicated to the AHA cause!
I’m not just walking. I’m Heartwalking. Cardiac disease and stroke are two of the primary killers in Maine. Working in healthcare, I see these diseases impact people and families daily and have now experienced personal contact with individuals affected by cardiovascular disease.
Please join me in combating these preventable conditions. Thank you for your support!
