I walk because I know that with every step I take, I’m making a difference in my family's life. This time last year, my daughter (Ashley) was pregnant with her first child and due the week after the Coastal Bend HeartWalk. Praises! She had a happy, healthy baby boy (see video above). Ashley has aortic stenosis, which put her at a greater risk during pregnancy, but because of all the specialists, she had no problems.
She has had Aortic Stenosis since she was 18 months old. We don't know how or why it happened but suspect it could have been a high fever. She has gone in for echocardiagrams on a yearly basis since she was 18 months old and continues to follow up with cardiac expertise even post pregnancy.
We are excited for Parker and pray for him and his mommy but know that when we combine 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?
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today! Parker says yay and thank you!
