I walk in memory of my parents who both lost their lives to heart disease. My mother's death was shocking to us all. She had no prior cardiac event and wasn't sick. She died suddenly in her sleep of a massive heart attack at the age of 56. She missed 3 of her four children's weddings and never met her 11 grandchildren.
While my mother's death was sudden, my father had prolonged cardiac illness. We watched him suffer for years from complications due to heart disease and diabetes. Ultimately, he passed away from heart and renal failure at the age of 74.
Despite advances in cardiac medicine, heart disease remains the #1 killer of Americans. Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
