Heart disease and stroke impacts almost all families and my family is no exception. My father, Arthur Joseph Atherton, had heart disease, experienced a heart attack and ultimately died due to complications related to a severe stroke that he suffered in August 1991.
I walk in my father's honor and I know that with every step, I’m making a difference in someone’s life. When combined with a million other Heart Walk Heroes across the nation, we have an even greater impact toward curing heart disease and stroke.
In addition, I am, once again, walking to support my good friend, David Machado, who is serving as Chairman of this year's Harrison County Heart Walk.
Will you be a Heart Walk Hero with me and consider matching my donation?
Our donations will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today!
