Why I Walk
Why I Walk
My father had his fourth heart attack this month. There are many avoidable, or treatable risks that contribute to heart problems, but his situation is different. While working with doctors to try to find a solution to this problem seems like a never ending search, I can only imagine how much worse off he would be without the amazing research that has already been done to help fight cardiovascular disease.
Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer in the world, contributing to 32% of ALL DEATHS. Chances are, this or cancer (My previous fundraiser) are what will ultimately do us all in.
The American Heart Association is the second largest funder of cardiovascular research second only to the US government. This is why I am proud to participate in the AHA Atlanta Heart Walk this year. If you can, please follow the link to donate so that we can make cardiovascular disease more treatable, and increase all of our qualities of life and longevity.
