I walk in memory of my dad and my brother. My dad benefitted from years of research that allowed him to have three worn-out heart valves replaced at age 86 and allowed him to live 6 more years. He passed away a short time after having a stroke but lived 30 years longer than his mother who died of stroke complications in the 1960's. My brother passed away at age 57 of sudden cardiac arrest. I hope that future research will prevent such tragedies...
I walk because I know that when combined with 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?
