I walk because I know that with every step, I am saving lives. This is a personal journey for me this year because I am walking in honor of my mother and cousin who are stroke survivors and in memory of my paternal grandmother who suffered a heart attack.
We're all tied to heart disease and stroke in some way. We must change that! God blessed me to start on a healthy living and fitness journey on January 5, 2023 to help change my statics for an adverse event. Will you help me in supporting AHA's efforts to change the statistics of adverse events worldwide?
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives. Funds from the AHA supported research that led to interventional use of tPA the blood clot busting medication, that has led to miraculus changes in the lives of stroke victims when administered within hours of a stroke. Unfortunately, my cousin had her stroke while serving on a medical mission trip in a remote village in the Dominican Republic where they did not have access to tPA. We are thankful for the progress that she is making on her journey to recovery in spite of her unimaginable event. Hopefully, you will now have a greater appreciation for the need for increased funding of the AHA.
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today. Thank you in advance for your support!
Peace, Blessings and Love,
One Heart - One Beat Team Captain
