This year's Heart Walk has taken on a completely different meaning for me. In November 2021 and January 2022, less than two months apart we lost both our parents to complications from heart disease. Dad had a massive stroke in December 2014 which left him mostly paralyzed on his right side and drastically changed his life forever. Mom had several stints and heart attacks and the damage to her heart was eventually too much. In January 2022, mom died due to the damage caused by cardiac arrest.
By joining the Heart Walk it is my hope that with every single step I take I’m making a difference in someone’s life. My goal is to be a part of the effort to stop the cycle and the heartbreak that occurs when family members are impacted by, or die from heart disease.
With the combined effort of over a million other Heart Walk Heroes across the nation, we have an even greater impact toward curing heart disease and stroke. Will you be a Heart Walk Hero with me?
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
