“The timing was really perfect for me. My own mother ended up having cardiac issues this past year and ended up having a pacemaker installed. It really, truly was a miraculous device. I realized that this was the right time for me because it really hit home, not just from a professional basis but from a personal standpoint, as well. The work and the research the American Heart Association does was invaluable in saving my own mother’s life.”
