A few years ago my Dad was admitted to the hospital with Bradycardia (he had a resting heart rate of 30 bpm) over Memorial Day weekend. He is a vet and the VA was closed. The hospital could not contact the VA to approve a pacemaker so they were going to send him home (his heart rate had slowed to 24 bpm). He would have passed out and potentially died had it not been for a friend who I just happened to have purchased a house from years ago who also happened to be a cardiologist. One phone call later my Dad was rushed to the OR for a pacemaker.
Not everyone has that connection so I/WE walk to raise awareness and money for the millions of people who are suffering or know someone suffering with heart disease.
