I walk because I know that with every step, I’m making a difference in someone’s life. Combined with a million other Heart Walk Heroes across the nation, we have an even greater impact toward curing heart disease and stroke.
This year the walk is especially important to me. My father suffered a heart attack in February this year. A complete blockage of his anterior descending artery caused his heart to stop. The quick interventions of the emergency hospital staff saved his life. They used protocols, many of which are supported by research supported through the American Heart Association.
