Why We Walk
2020 Metro Chicago Heart Walk Digital Experience
Santos Chaparro is a manager on the ComEd Smart Meter Operations Team. Just 8 months ago he experienced some complications with his heart. This was totally unexpected, and it changed his perspective on many things. His family, grandkids, co-workers and friends all felt the impact in one way, shape or form. He was fortunate to have good doctors, an excellent support system and a rather large family whose thoughts and prayers for his well-being made a huge difference. Life as he knew it changed, and he stepped into his "New Normal".
Thankfully after many procedures, appointments, follow-ups and a Pacemaker/Defibrillator implant...Santos can now take long walks with his wife and grandkids. He looks forward to better health and the opportunity to share life with his loved ones for many years to come. He’s participating in the Virtual Heart Walk because he knows that with every step, he’s making a difference in someone’s life. 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 our team?
