Why I Walk
Why I Walk!
Heart disease knows no age and is personal for me as it took each member of my immediate family. My little brother Ricky died when he was just 4 years old; my older sister Linda died in 1982 after having just turned 30; my Mom had her aortic valve replaced, necessitating the use of Cuomadin (a blood thinner). Mom fell, hitting her head which caused a cerebral hemorrhage and her subsequent death. My Father suffered a debilitating stroke, which left him with aphasia and limited vision. Dad later suffered several other smaller strokes in addition to dementia. I'm the middle child and lucky one...... I was diagnosed with pulmonic stenosis at a very early age which has been monitored my entire life with no limitations.
I can't change the past, but I recognize the blessings I've been given in leading an active life and therefore...... I walk.......for Mom, Dad, Linda and Ricky, because they can't.
