Life is Why! Join me in supporting the American Heart Association! I am a 10 year SURVIVOR of the widowmaker. I had a 90% blockage. My Cardiologists all say I'm very lucky to be alive. I now have an ICD. I have V-fib as My heart doesn't beat fast enough, but then every now & again I have A-Fib ! I had an ablation & the Watchman implanted. December of 2018 & January of 2019, I had a TIA ... mini stroke. You never know when things like this can happen. My ICD fired on Sept. 7, 2019 due to V-TACH. My heart was beating 237 beats a minute. My Cardiologist once again said, you are lucky to be alive. Without my ICD, I would have died that day .
I have many family members affected by heart disease. Most of us have survived but still have issues with our cardiovascular system. We have lost Family members along the way.
I’m not just walking. I’m Heartwalking. 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. Please help me reach this lifesaving goal by donating today. Together, we can make healthier, longer lives possible for everyone.
Thank you in advance for your support!
