This will be my 6th year participating in the Heart Walk. Always an amazing cause, just over 4 years ago the Walk became even more personal for me when my Dad suffered a heart attack known as the "Widow Maker". He was fortunate enough to survive, in part thanks to all of the advancements in science and medicine made possible by events such as the Heart Walk.
This year we walk in honor of his mom, my "Bachi", who underwent open heart surgery at a time when it was still a new operation. The surgery was supposed to byhe at most an extra 10 years of life. In reality it provided her an extra 60+ years.
Please join my family in support of the Heart Walk this year!
