Let's Save Lives!
As an American Heart Association Board Member and Executive Leader for the 2020 Omaha-Council Bluffs Heart Walk, I am writing to ask for your financial support.
Saturday, June 5th is the date for the Virtual Omaha-Council Bluffs Heart Walk. The start time is whenever you want and location is wherever you are!
I support the American Heart Association for many reasons, not the least of which is my son, Joey (that's me and him at the UNL Sig Ep Dad's Day). If you have visited this page before, you know that Joey and I both were born with a congenital heart defect. My defect came to light in my early 40s and resulted in a open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve. Joey may have to face the same procedure down the road, but I'm confident that, because of the amazing work of the American Heart Association, he will not have to endure open heart surgery. A significantly less invasive valve replacement procedure already exists and is being utilized every day. The research and funding provided by the AHA is my inspiration and movtivation for making this request of financial support.
