My Brother is Why!
As many of you already know, my brother Doug died of a heart attack at home on February 11, 2010. He was only 47 years old. He left behind a wife and 6 children ranging from the age of 8 to 19. He had several symptoms that he unfortunately ignored. He felt tired, anxious and "sick". He thought he would just go home from work early and lay down for a little while. When he got home he collapsed. Please know the signs of a heart attack. They are not always the signs you think of (pain in your chest and pain in your left arm). The warning signs are different in women than in men. Learn the differences. Please be active and eat healthy. I know that is easier said than done but you can start by just making some small changes in your routines.
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!
