Why do I support (and work) for the American Heart Association? Because one in three women will die of cardiovascular disease or stroke. I don't like those odds. I also have cardiovascular disease in my birth family and my adopted family - my birth mother had a stroke at age 45. My mom has had a series of small strokes and at 95 years old can't have any tests or procedures for her blocked artery. And I am a survivor of 2 TIAs, which I had in my early 20's. Please help me reach my goal of $1,000 so we can change the odds for our mothers, our sisters and our friends. Thanks so much!
