Hi! My name is Sarah. I am 17 years old and this year will be my 18th year participating in the American Heart Association's Heart Walk!
My heart journey began at 20 days old when I experienced cardiac arrest and was diagnosed with Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT), a heart arrhythmia that made my heart beat too fast (up to 260 beats per minute!). Various medications helped control my heart rhythm until I had corrective surgery at the age of 5.
I'm joining the Heart Walk to promote physical activity to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Please support me in helping to reach this lifesaving goal by giving a donation today! Thanks in advance for your support.
